Grand Canyon of the stikine - crazy season

Every year in the fall as river levels dip to their lowest point, all eyes are on the Stikine river in norther BC.

The Stikine is seen as the pinnacle of whitewater, and in recent years more and more paddlers have made the pilgrimage to explore its hidden treasures.

Film includes 2 runs of the Badass Site Zed rapids by Aniol Serrasolses and Galen Volckhausen!
(HUGE props to Aniol and Gerd for firing it up again in 2014 at 450cumecs!!!)

In this film i do my best to show in the truest form our experience from 2 runs down the river for the 2013 season.

After all.... we all know a good river trip is not just about the whitewater, but the special places and people along the way.

sit back and immerse yourself in the Stikine river with some of the coolest cats on the whitewater scene today.



would love to know your thoughts!
Adrian

That was an amazing video. Towards the end when the green boat caught air in v-drive... Awesome. Good work!

Great video, thanks for posting. Some of the best video I've seen of Site Zed. That stern squirt ~14:10 is outrageous.

Great to see this as I'll never be up there rafting. Hey, maybe I'll do it with my ducky!

This video shows Kayak skills and personal courage at the highest level.

Looking at your buddies getting hammered while you film, then jumping into the gnar yourself takes a lot of inner confidence. (assuming the camera operators did not go first ) !!!!

Awesome filming and video editing.

I will never get to see that run in person, thanks so much for making this video available to the entire boating community.
