So as usual life has been in the fast lane with summer school starting, my return from Outer Banks North Carolina with Subaru USA and now my leaving for X-Games on Thursday. Anyway I still have some great content coming out from these events and enjoy the little edit from my birthday!
The McCloud River is a special place nestled deep in northern California. This river contains some of the most substantial waterfalls right outside of my hometown of Mt. Shasta. The river literally is fed by Mt. Shasta’s snow melt and is one of the most pristine drainages in the north state. For my 24th birthday I wanted to get in the classic Shasta multi sport day and was stoked to get on some low water Upper Falls, a section on the Sacramento, and a solid 4,000 … Read More »
My life has been chaos as usual rolling into midterms but last weekend was the Brush Creek race outside Kernville, CA. The race went well with some fast racers laying it down and I ended up taking 6th place in the short boat division off the couch from pushin pencils. We did a showing of Slippery When Wet Saturday night after the race and overall it was an amazing weekend with all da homies remembering the life of our friend Randolph Green.

If you are into action sports at all then you have heard of GoPro. I have had the pleasure of working with this company from almost the beginning, with 6 years as a sponsored athlete, I have watched the original GoPro Hero transform into the number 1 selling helmet camera in the world. In all honesty most of the kayakers that saw the first Hero were skeptical of its performance and design, but ohhhhh did GoPro shut them up with the release of the first 1080 HD Head Cam under $300.
Once the first HD Hero was released it quickly was seen in every extreme sport across the board, all the biggest names in surfing, motocross, skiing, mtn biking, and even kayaking wanted to get their hands on them. When I first met Nick Woodman (the creator of … Read More »
So life has finally mellowed out a little after a busy quarter of film school at UC Santa Cruz. I am on my way up to Mt. Shasta for the holidays and stoked to have a little time off. GoPro has been a pinnacle sponsor in the progression of Shasta Boyz and after almost of 6 years working together our relationship continues to grow. I have watched this company expand from 3 people to a multi national corporation in just a half decade. Impeccable customer service and an unbeatable product, GoPro continues to push the progression action sports videography into 2012.
GoPro asked me to put together a 100% Hero Reel from Slippery When Wet to promote the original GoPro Hero. This segment boast footage from all over the world including California, Pacific Northwest, Mexico, and relief … Read More »
Feather Fest is one of my favorite events in California. This year was my 5th year straight attending this event and it was larger than ever boasting over 400+ people and racers. This event has proven a success because of the help from American Whitewater, the whole race is roadside (so its spectator friendly), and a dedicated event staff committed to throwing a solid rager. This was the first race I have attended and not brought a video camera so sorry for the lack of video this time, but FYI, it did feel amazing to just sit back and enjoy the event. If you are feeling a need to check out this section though see our video page with multiple edits from previous years.
There is always a stacked race, with some of the fastest in Cali throwing … Read More »
So here is it the final 7th trailer to conclude the Slippery When Wet trailer phenomenon. It has been a sh#t load of work getting all these done but STOKED to be finished with them. It is getting down to the wire making the DVD cover/ menus and getting all the finishing touches on the film. In a perfect world I will have DVD’s buy early Aug but it just depends on how much can still go wrong. Moving forward, here are some screen shots from the Knight brothers trailer.

I just got back from an amazing birthday weekend in Santa Cruz with my family, it was great to spend some time with those who know me best and support my passion to the fullest. All the final trailers for Slippery When Wet are almost complete and the film is starting to come together. I am trying to have everything done by mid-July but its going to be a big push as Outdoor Retailer is in the beginning of August and then I will be moving back to Santa Cruz to finish up some schooling at University California Santa Cruz. Here are some screen shots from the trailer.
So it has taken a little time to sift through all the different photos and media from the trip so there will probably be 2 Japan updates here at SBP. I am also crazy busy trying to finish Slippery When Wet and get the last 3 trailers out and live so forgive me for my lack of updates since we have been back. Let me start out by saying that Japan was not exactly what I expected, in a good way. This country contains some of the most unique white water I have seen anywhere in the world; everything from steep committed creeking to aqua blue big water. Personally I did not expect such a versatility of white water nor the amount of big drops that litter the island. When it comes down to it the white water was … Read More »
