So far it has been a super sweet trip. We just got off the river from our first event and were stoked to see how many paddlers showed up. With the water on the rise and tons of sunshine the local paddling season is well under way here. We have been in the Alberton Gorge most every night and have seen both the top competition hole and the lower diagonal doing their thing. Fang is also kickin'. Last night Corey hit both sides with Donkey flips, a big blunt right back into a helix and stuck them all, on one ride. Kind of a fluky ride but non-the less it was sick to see. Lots of hoots from the gallery for it. After the run a few hit Fred's while we headed in to town for a great slide show on a paddling trip to Chile.
If you have never been to Missoula I suggest a road trip here soon. Seth Warren is having his river event in two weeks so if youre around you might want to check it out. Rumor has it the YGP air show will be here so for sure an event to see in person. If you are farther south, try to make it to Reno for their first ever Reno River Fest. Both should be epic.
As for creaking, we should be getting involved by mid week. Going to the Lochsa for a few days to surf and play some bigger water. We ran it two days ago and had a great run. Sooooooo many waves there.
Next week is our Whitefish stop and then back to Colorado for a week before Reno. Check the PWTPs schedule at www.dagger.com
and see if you can make one of the events in your area.
