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 »
On Oct 1st. 2010 myself and Cody Howard showed our films, Wet Dreams and Haymaker, at Dragon Graphics in Chico, CA. It was a great event that catered to kayakers and dirt bags alike. Jeff Baylor is the man for hosting such a great event and throwing down to get everyone wasted. There was about 45 people in attendance for the free show and the kick ass $1 raffle which concluded the event.
HUGE shout out to Hippy Tree clothing, Sanuk sandals, Liquid Logic Kayaks, Snapdragon skirts, Watershed dry-bags, Skaddle, and Dragon Graphics for throwing down such sick gear ranging from shoes and cloths, to high quality stretched canvas prints and throw bags. Although a smaller showing, the people that came out were very supportive and fired up for both projects.

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 »
So we have been lacking some posts around here but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been any kayaking going on. The water has been great up here in nor cal and it does not seem like its going anywhere. After a few days boating I made the drive with my girlfriend from St. Simons Island, GA back to Mt. Shasta, CA. It was an epic drive to say the least and here are some photos from the journey.
On another note, the highly anticipated premier of Huckin Huges HAYMAKER is set for next week on the 24th of June held at the prestigious Harkins Theater in Tempe, AZ. This will be a huge event featuring very impressive white water and top notch cinematography. Cody Howard has put a lot into this project so if … Read More »
It has begun….. the sequel to Wet Dreams. Slippery When Wet will release in 2011 and will feature Big Island Hawaii, plenty of Cali, and much much more. This is the first of many teasers so keep you eyes out for more wet lovin……..
More news….. this past week I nominated our fellow Shasta Boy, Ben Stookesberry, for Rider of the Year 2010. There is really no need to explain why, he is one of the best boaters in my life time and it seemed common sense that he should be in the running for such a title. See my nomination here.
Thanks for everyone keeping up with our adventures and stay tuned for much more.

We have been in Hilo Hawaii for a week now. Huckin Huge has taken off to film for a Military Channel show in Oahu, while me and Justin Patt stick it out in Hilo, praying for rain.
(Notorious shooting sunrise off our deck)
It has been an action packed week. Searching out volcanic drainages, firing off 1st decents, and getting in as much filming in as possible, given the water we have had. This first week has been all about motivation and getting the shots we need for our projects. Cody Howard has been in the forefront getting in as much action as possible. Without the full crew, (Shon Bollock, Cody Howard, Justin Patt, Jake Sanders, and Harrison Tobin) this trip could not of happened, pure motivation is … Read More »
