without comments

River Gypsies just finished publishing their new Guide to Whitewater Kayaking Classics throughout North America. I managed to get a page in there for some of Squamish’s classic waterfalls.

Shooting with Reel Water Productions

without comments

This weekend was spent shooting with RWP for an up and coming TV documentry. RWP are a Squamish based production company run by Bryan Smith. In the past I have worked with Bryan on some of his Ocean kayaking movies and other kayak based productions. The rigging for the stunt was set up by Local climbing/rigging guru Matt Madaloni.

This weekends shoot was between summits 2 and 3 on the Stawamus chief here in Squamish. The plan was for ‘extreme ginger’ Robin Avery to walk a slackline spanning the gulley between the two points.

The shoot turned out to be a full adventure weekend with us ending up getting stormed off the peak on saturday evening as a lightenning storm descended upon the Chief. Having planned for a dry lightweight bivouc on the Chief, non of the team had brought tarps, waterproof camera bags or even rain jackets as the forcast had shown nothing but dry weather. Just as we finished up shooting on Saturday evening what looked like a sizeable storm rolled around the back of Garibaldi peak, the general consesus was it was nothing but a light shower :-) 20 mins later we were booting it over peak 2 cluthcing our camera’s within our bivi bags, watching as lightenning bolts fell all around us. We finally ended up descending in torrential rain in pitch blackness.

All in all the weekend was a total success, the team worked well together, overcame the many hurdles in the way and came back down on sunday evening with a TV documentry ready to be edited. Here are some of the images from the weekends events……

Kayak season is almost upon us…..

Well the snow is on it’s way out, pig flu is on it’s way in, the temperatures are rising and the rivers are slowly starting to fill for the summer. The rivers and creeks around the Squamish area are still low in relation to how warm it has been, it seems it may be another week or so before the season truly begins. Maybe the first of the rains will open the season with a bang ?

At present the Whistler area is slowly moving, but things like the Calaghan Creek are still too low, maybe a week or so will see them coming into the low end flows. Vancouver is starting to move and the Ashlu area maybe offering low Box Canyon flows.

All too soon the rivers will go from trickles to raging torrents and the start of the spring madness begins ! Spring kayaking always feels a little bit sketchy as you are often not as fresh as you are mid summer and the rivers are at their highest and most challenging flows. Spring in the Whistler area, usually means lots of laps on the super classic upper Cheak and high flow Calaghan runs, both offering big volume fun creeking…..
