It has been an interesting winter here in northern California as we got some great early storms to build up the pack but we just got through a week of sunny 60 degree weather (which was great for boating). Recently I took a quick trip to Santa Cruz to meet my new nephew Skye and lend a helping hand putting the final touches on my brothers new house. In the past week I have been doing a little local boating and busing out heaps of media management deep in da cave.
Living in the greater Siskiyou County area up here in the far northern reaches of California has many benefits. The first of many being that there is usually another fellow filmmaker deep in the editing cave sharing similar ambitions of winter kayaking. With all this warm weather us cave monsters … Read More »
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.
For the past 4 years I have had the pleasure to work with Sanuk as a premier sponsor. They not only make the most comfortable sandals on earth but are one of the few surf companies branching into the outdoor industry. Recently they have started posting news updates on Facebook every friday that feature athletes, product, and basically pure fun. In this most recent episode the Sanuk Crew features some footage from Haymaker and Slippery When Wet, captured during our trip to Hawaii this year.
Can’t get enough? Neither could I, if you got a hankerin’ for some more Sanuk love, subscribe to there vimeo channel here so you can be up to date with all the happenings.

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.

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 »
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.

So the swell here in Santa Cruz is going off, the Mavericks surf competition was held last weekend and boasted some of the largest waves to date. School is in full swing, including 13 hrs of class on tuesdays, so really just looking forward to the Spring and the Wet Dreams/ Haymaker tour coming up in the next couple months. Here is the first sneak peek into our story…..
The trip was a total transit time of 24 hrs of driving and plane transfers, but it felt great to be with a boat heading to a destination we had all be dreaming of. The trip started in Mt. Shasta where I was joined by Justin Patt. We drove to Portland and stayed the night with fellow Shasta Boy Ryan Knight. Ryan was kind … Read More »
So its t-minus 3 days before Hawaii and the team is gearing up. Cody Howard, with Huckin Huge Productions will be flying out tomorrow followed by me and Justin Patt on Monday.
Keep praying for rain cause we will need all the precipitation we can get.
The new Go Pro HD head cams, featured in this next video, will easily revolutionize action sports. The clarity and easy to use factor make this product number one in its industry. Check out this little footage from the Upper Sacramento…
Hope everyone has had wonderful holidays and looking forward to this island expedition.
It was my first trip down the South Branch this spring. It is an amazing run to say the least and here are some photos from the run. Photos by: Chris Korbulic Shon Bollock, 99 Problems
