Sacramento DAZE

1st April


With heavy snow pack throughout most of Cali, including up here in Siskiyou county, the Sacramento has been swollen most of the winter bringing in rare waves and hosting really fun water very close by. The Sacramento is one of the smaller drainages in California but holds water extremely well and can be run as high as it ever gets. Kyle Hull came through and was keen to get on some water so we got on the Sacramento @ 9500 cfs for a couple days with some Tunnel of Love, Mears Creek in there as well. Good times, enjoy the edit shot completely with the Go Pro HD Hero and look for the next Slippery When Wet trailer featuring Ben Stookesberry to drop in a week or so.

Here are a few photos from the couple days on the … Read More »


The 5 year wave, Redding California

23rd March

So I have been caved out up here in Mt. Shasta as we have been getting lots of snow in the past week and expect at least another foot by the end of the week. Sure as hell doesn’t feel like spring except the rivers are swollen and the lakes are full. I will be the first to admit that my play boating is the weakest aspect of my kayaking but this wave is fun no matter what your skill level. At normal flows this feature is a nasty low head dam but when Keswick Dam starts releasing at least 38,000 cfs or higher the Redding Wave forms. This happens about once ever 5 years, as the last time I surfed it was before I went to World Class Kayak Academy in 2006.

On Monday morning I decided to rally down … Read More »


Slippery When Wet: Drew Duval

14th March

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 »


Slippery When Wet: Chris Korbulic

21st February

So finally here it is, the second trailer for the 7 trailer phenomena from Slippery When Wet. Next up we have dear friend and long time boating compadre Chris Korbulic. If you are not familiar with this paddler then you must not use the internet……ever. Chris has been making noise in a kayak from a tender age growing up in Gold Hill, OR along the banks of the Rouge River. He is one of the most talented kayakers/photographers in the outdoor industry today, not only because of his abilities in a kayak but because of his attitude. You would never know how big Chris goes in a kayak because of his modesty and calm demeanor. He is one of my closest friends and favorite paddling partners for that reason alone. Here are a handful of screen shots from his trailer … Read More »


South Fork Salmon: Wet Dreams ONLINE

2nd February

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 »


Slippery When Wet: Evan Garcia

24th January

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.

10th January

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.

Tunnel of LOVE

10th December

We have been lucky enough to receive a lot of early precip up here in northern California and it has made for some decent winter boating thus far. On Sunday (12/5/10) I enjoyed a great solo day out with my girlfriend Callie, unfortunately the flows were marginal on Mears Creek. This run flows into the Upper Sacramento and is located about 20mins south of Mt. Shasta.

Lovin’ the Level Six Barrier Dry Suit.

That night it dumped rain for a solid 9 hours and the following morning I knew there would be water somewhere around the area. Here is a gauge for the Sac telling the story on the morning of Dec 6th…

As the Shasta Boyz are kinda spread out these days, Ryan down in SLO working as a nurse and Dev is here in Shasta working … Read More »


Korg 3.0 Benefit=SUCCESS

30th November

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.

First off let me thank all the sponsors who donated raffle prizes to our benefit. HUGE thanks to Liquid Logic, Sanuk, Level Six, Five Ten, Shasta Base Camp, Go Pro Cameras, Helmet … Read More »


Sanuk News: Man vs. Bear

19th November

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.

Huge thanks to Huckin’ Huge for the footage and Nima Fadavi for the beat. Enjoy.

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.
