Three friends, three completely different boats, but one shared goal… white water fun! Full story in a few days, but here’s the video of our fun running a river in the Southern Highlands after a week of rain. Enjoy! Cheers – FP
UPDATE! Just another little video, this time a short blooper reel from the river run. Enjoy!
Sweet ! There’s sure been enough rain lately so something was bound to be running. Our yard is a swamp.
OUTSTANDING FOOTAGE of a FABULOUS PADDLE !!
How much better is this than paddling flat water and ocean!
Been thinking of buying a packraft to do some white water/river trips.
This vid just reinforced the idea.
Kudos to the guy in the canoe! Great style!
Well, I’ll always love where ocean meets cliff, it’s a totally different sensation. Surfing the ocean is far more exciting that surfing a standing wave too, because of the sensation of speed. But that being said, I had an absolute blast running the river, its extremely different paddling moving water than stationary water with moving wave energy (ie ocean swell/surf).
As for the canoe paddler(s), Travis from Paddle & Portage Canoes has paddled canoes all his life and is a fanatic. Sparky (who gets that long ride in the canoe at the end) is also pretty amazing with the single blade! Both are FAR more skilled than I! 😉
I’ve been thinking of getting a remix 10, you sound pretty happy with it. What skirt did you get to fit it? Any other suggestions? Oh, and what creek were you on? Cheers
Hey Russ. I cant remember, but the distributor here (Capacity Sports) had one that fit ok. I’ll check tonight.
