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 »

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 »
Well here it is. The highly anticipated release of the 4th of 7 Slippery When Wet trailers featuring the man, the myth, the legend, Ben Stookesberry. This man has proven himself world class filmmaker, kayak icon, and easily one of the top expedition kayakers on the planet. I can say openly, after knowing Ben since I was 14, that he possesses the mindset of no other kayaker I have met. If its possible in a kayak Ben is the man that will make it happen. One similar trait that you will find from all athletes featured in this film is an overall calm demeanor with an immense respect for the river. Ben’s shear passion for exploratory kayaking has put him at the forefront of the kayaking industry. Here are some screen shots from his trailer.
So here she is, the third installment of the 7 trailer phenomena from our upcoming film Slippery When Wet. To see the first 2 trailers click here. Next up is good friend and amazing athlete Drew Duval. Duval’s humble beginnings started right here in southern California before moving to the East Coast and continuing to progress his skills there. There are a few reasons why I decided to feature Drew as one of our starring athletes. A prominent factor was Drew’s utter love for the river and passion for being in his kayak. He is one of those guys that loves to kayak regardless of what he is paddling, it can be the gnar class V or a mellow day cruising, it doesn’t matter to Drew, he is all about the swirl. These are highly respected characteristics in my … Read More »
Here it is. The first trailer for the current project here at SBP, Slippery When Wet. This is 1of 7 trailers for the film, one trailer for each athlete featured (minus the Knight bros they count as one). This project is going to be a lot of work but I am hoping it can give some deeper insight to each athletes style and passion for the river. Here are some stills from the trailer.

So things have been wicked busy since I got back from Christmas in St. Simons Island Georgia and then Santa Cruz, California for New Years, just in time for my brothers baby shower. It was good times hanging out with the family and I am excited to be an uncle here in the the next few weeks. Here are some photos from the holidaze adventure.

After everything that could possibly go wrong does and you still have a successful event, well that would be the story of the Wet Dreams and HAYMAKER tour. We have been the largest sh#t show in the business, no doubt, but still were able to generate $400 for our boy Grant Korgan. Grant recently did his first sit up in over 7 months, this is a huge feat and all us Shasta Boyz congratulate you one your achievement. KEEP CHARGIN. This tour finale is one to go down in the history books and also a very worthy tale.
We have finally come to the end of the road for the Wet Dreams and HAYMAKER tour. It has been an amazing experience meeting new people and connecting with the paddling community that supports what we do. Also a big thanks to Cody Howard for setting up all the logistics for the shows I was not able to attend.
Here is a short video from our last show in Chico California, edited by Cody Howard courtesy of Huckin Huge.
For our final show we have chosen my neck of the woods. Just north of Mt. Shasta, CA is the little town of Weed. The folks at Mt. Shasta Brewing Company have been kind enough to let us dirt bag kayakers terrorize their place of business … Read More »
Hope everyone is enjoying the fall. School is kicking my a$$ up here but Im gettin’ er’ done. So I talked Cody Howard on his way up to BC and we have decided on one last premier of HAYMAKER and Wet Dreams. The venue is not yet decided but it will take place where it all started in my hometown of Mt. Shasta, CA.
At the beginning of the week I came across this video of fellow kayaker Grant Korgan. During February 2010 he was injured in a snowmobile accident and has temporarily lost the use of his legs. I have not had the pleasure of meeting him in person but right away I felt the desire to help however I could. Myself and Cody Howard have decided to donate the money from our final premier to aid in … Read More »
