DoubleT is the best looking boater on the buzz?

Seriously? That's the best photo the buzz could come up with for a banner? A photo of a Salt Lake boater on a Cali run, taken by a boater who is moving to Farmington, NM? Not to mention that one of them has back hair to rival a silverback and only got into nursing cause he couldn't find any boating chicks, but the other one I hear is a professional Mormon 'floater'....

Finally the long predicted apocalypse has arrived to the Buzz.

Joe, I hear what you are saying. I mean the buzz' icon is some mo-mo-land dude that paddles a special boat that is designed to go too fast. I've only seen 'Rado boaters use those when they want and unfair advantage in the local afterwork impromptu race series on the backyard III+ (make that II+ this year!). Even though this new photo doesn't show the true colors too well, that guy is wearing a PURPLE full face. Fact!

And don't even get me started on the photog. All that cali glamour boating doesn't mean sh*t in this mank capital. I can't even get these guys to run eldo anymore! Oh well, at least its a kayaking photo (surprised it's not a panoramic of an oar surrounded by flatwater...).

I kinda like the buzz spring spruce up. Nice to change it up a little to keep it fresh.

I don't know why everyone is moving away from the mank capital. There are at least 6 weeks of good water every year, and we are running gore at 550 now. What more could you want?

Whitewater... overrated. Flatwater, way too overplayed on this site. The buzz icon should encompass everything kayakers stand for; Exploration, risk, companionship, and the passion for rivers. I think this picture covers all of those.

Andy is asking for more pictures for the banner. If you have a better one post it here:

anybody know where that drop is? Is that rigo mortis? I heard that was the hardest 5+ on the front range. Where ever it is I'm guessing doublet did a fiddler mid way or did he do the fiddler in mammoth with those 2 asians, I guess I'm getting to old to remember.

Agreed that we need a serious change up. The photo screams clean rock and waterfalls into pools... definitely not the Rocky Mountains. If we want a picture that truly represents the classic whitewater of Colorado we should go with a Silverplume to Georgetown Clear Creek picture or maybe Rock Creek or Buzzard Creek.

On the plus side, at least it's not a raft or a SUP. That would be totally uncool.
