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 »
Its hard to understand the kayak industry unless you’re in it. We love to kayak but we also love to party, loud, long, and hard. The Feather Festival on the North Fork of the Feather river has continued to be a hub for great racing and EPIC partying. This year was no exception. Some of the top athletes on the west coast came and showed what they were made of.
There are a few events featured at the festival, time trials, Hangover-X, and SUP. This year Taylor Robertson cleaned house, 1st place in long boat, boater-x, and SUP. SAVAGE. Here are some photos of the event courtesy of Callie Daniel.

Well with the start of school things are a little silent up here in Mt. Shasta but we found some time to go and surf at the School House wave on the Klamath off I-96. Myself, Ben Stookesberry, Chris Korbulic, and Chiseki rallied out for an afternoon surf.
Here are some shots from the session courtesy of Callie Daniel.
More school for another couple weeks and then down to the North Feather for the Tobin Race. Really looking forward to this event and getting my new kayaks that are in the mail.
This year at Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, UT I had the pleasure to meet with Woody and Shane at Liquid Logic. We had a similar vision for what should be expected from athletes in our industry today and I … Read More »
California has been having one of the best years for water in decades, and me not being able to stray too far from Shasta, these are just a couple of our local gems. Hopefully be getting some more water this summer but gotta start saving some cash for college and a new computer for Slippery When Wet.
Here is a little video featuring Mears Creek and 2 mins outside town, the Box Canyon of the Sacramento flowing directly out of the Box Canyon Dam. It is nice to be back in the land of kayaking close to home, you never miss it till its gone.
On another note, Thursday was the world premier of HAYMAKER and a quick showing of Shasta Boyz Wet Dreams. There was a great turn out at the Harkins Theater in Tempe, AZ and it was a perfect … Read More »
On Thursday (4/15/10) the Shasta Boyz set out from Santa Cruz, Shon Bollock, my brother River Krimmer, and Chiseki McConnaughay aka the tooth fairy named for reasons you will soon see.
After a 7 hr drive, with trash directions from an i-phone, we got to the Brush Creek take out and crashed around 1 am.
The following day Friday the 16th, we got up early to lap it up. This was my brothers first creek and we routed him down everything blind, he killed it. The crew finished out with 3 laps for the day and I pretended like I was finding my race lines. After a day of Brush Creekin we opted for burgers at KRBC a must do if your down in Kernville.
On Saturday (4/17/10) was the race. We woke up early to get in one lap before the competitors … Read More »
Here is a shot of the urban mischief we got into this Spring. Yours truly in mid-flight and Chiseki McConnaughy at top. This photo was taken by Trevor Clark a traveling photographer. He hid in some bushes a few hundred feet up on the hillside above the dam to get this shot. Make sure to check out his exploits at www.trevorclarkphoto.com
Look for the full footage in Huckin Huge’s next film Haymaker releasing in 2010.
