WWGP videos (and NOT a plea for money)

Hello mountainbuzz. We meet again.

Last year when the Whitewater Grand Prix application period opened, there was a huge outcry, a lot of controversy, and Natalie and I couldn't afford to buy tickets to Chile. This year, everything seems chill. We have time to save up for a trip to Quebec in case we get invited, nobody has been denouncing the event and accusing anyone else of genocide in the process, and everything is basically... normal.

So I don't know how much traffic this post will have. Oh well. At least it can help you get stoked to last through the offseason.

Natalie's WWGP application video:

Leif's WWGP application video:

Our facebook page: We're trying to get more likes than Todd Wells. It's a long story. Actually I guess it isn't - that was the whole story right there.

By the way, huge thanks to everyone that donated to help us get to the Grand Prix last year. What are our chances of getting invited?

Good luck, great vids! I'm a huge fan of the WWGP, it's definitely much better than a bunch of pros playing in some small hole on the Nantahala...

Sweet videos Leif! Of all the sickness in your video I think the sickest move might be the slo-mo mullet ponytail waving in the breeze on the seal launch. That alone is for sure to get you into the WWGP.

Awesome videos. Good luck on your quest. The kickflip in the duo was badass.

Awesome video Leif! But who's going to educate people on Gauss's law when you're gone? There are a whole lot of fluxes out there just waiting to be quantified.

Good stuff. Hope you both qualify, but I liked the music in Natalie's a little better.

Nice job! I hope you both get in - would be pretty great to have a married couple represent.
