SPRING STOKE! Hey peeps! The CKS Squad is getting fired up for an amazing 2011 paddling season. They have been posting a bunch of pics to the CKS Squad Blog and talking about what they are looking forward to getting into this year. Tons of great new content - check it out here: The Colorado Kayak Chronicle

PS - We'd love to hear about what you are looking forward to paddling this spring here on this thread, as well as some or your best pics from last season to get us all even more stoked than we already are for this year.

On my list? Well, plenty but I am really looking forward to a long season of backyard runs on the local Crested Butte creeks. In particular, we might get some HIGH water, which is always really fun on Daisy creek. Below is one of my fav shots of last year. Local PBR connoisseur Chris Larsen on Big Woody Falls:

Definitely stoked for the upcoming season. I have paddled 7 times in the last 9 days (low water ark), and have the itch to go somewhere with more water...if only gas wasn't so high.

Hoping to get up to the northern end of the state a few times this season, Yampa, Elk and Northgate are new runs on the radar.

Those blog posts for this year are unreal already. I'm really psyched to see some new super fired up CKS Squad members! Sicklee, Al C, Tom Janney and even the Sensi himself - there's going to be some wild times and impressive photos on the blog this season!

Flows lookin big for sure! I'm stoked to be in a new area to explore! Started boating in WY and moved to mt last fall. Stoked on my new Villian too!!!. Its a red to white fade that I call the blody tampon but nobody seems to find that as amusing as I do.... oh well. Sweet pics and early stokeage. We need some up here, have not seen to many creek boats driving around yet.
