LOG: behind the scenes-Nick Troutman dishes it out under the bridge!

I never dreamed I'd have the pleasure of photographing the World Freestyle Kayak Champion in this funky spot; the “World's Greatest Side Surf Hole” in Lyons. I’ve been thinking about creating this image for years as I surf this hole in my kayak and eddy out looking at this spooky face painted on the bridge. There are poems and all kinds of “art” coving the walls on both sides making this the most "interesting" eddy in Boulder County if not all of Colorado.
Much thanks to Nick for giving me his precious time to create these images. Working with an athlete of this caliber is a true joy. He could make my vision a reality, putting himself and his boat in just the right spot while doing some of the most difficult maneuvers ever realized in a kayak.

As a side note this is normally a small 12" wave that all you can do is side surf. With the record flow it became a real gem!
