This is a story about teamwork, it’s about reaching deep inside yourself and finding that extra drive you didn’t know you had. This story is about tandem canoe racing.
This Friday, July 9th, at 7:00 pm please come see me at NOC. I’ll be showing a kayak film on a big screen in the retail store. From 6-7 I’ll be available to help folks with IR and Shred Ready product questions, then the film will premiere at 7pm sharp. Try to groom your arm hair a little better than the photo below before we shake, if you don’t mind. DVDs, t-shirts and stuff will be available at the showing. Free stickers like these for non-hairy-arm handshakes.

What does kayaking mean to different individuals, from the untrained beginner, to the seasoned professional? A collective of kayaking filmmakers entitled Rapid Transit, all of whom share a common goal of telling fun, exciting and engaging stories through the lens of a camera, attempt to give an answer, or perhaps just a perspective regarding this query. Along the way viewers will plunge into North Carolina’s deepest and most remote gorge, the Linville. Onlookers will meet the kayakers who first attempted the Linville Gorge descent in the 1970s, and see the reality of paddling this river over 30 years later.
After the Deadman in the Darkroom gig at the 2008 Gauley Fest, I was approached, by an old friend of mine, to help in producing a short film. The goal of this project was to aid in acquiring funds to purchase a two mile stretch banking the Lower Chauga in the upstate of South Carolina. These two miles are located within the runout of the often paddled class IV Chauga section. This acquisition would connect to the present Chau Ram Park trail system and give the general public access to a greater portion of this wilderness. Due to the recession in America’s economy the State of South Carolina cut all funding from the Preservation Department and the project never got off the ground.
Spring 2008: March-June I shot a good handful of footage that never made it into any of our videos. Also, Daniel Windham and Chris Gragtmans contributed some nice footage from the Elk Gorge and the Fayetteville WV area. All in all this made for a fun Video-Podcast. The normal “edit-to-music” format wasn’t doing it for me so I decided to do more of a commentary style mixed with music. You’ll see once you get into the video.
