Local films arriving daily

Looks like some great mini films to display local boating adventures for Durango and vicinity. Locally produced films include a Bumpin and Grindin, a parody about inner tubing on Vallecito Creek, First Descents- a celebration of Cancer Camps for kayakers, Pandora- a film about top secret Durango area kayaking venues, BUG- about local slalom racing star Zach Lokken, Durango Steeps- local kayaking, and Dive- local paddlers on a Scuba Dive trip in Indonesia.

Don't forget we will be holding the first ever BOATER-X event at Animas River Days. This will be held immediately after the slalom races at Santa Rita. So you slalom boaters: make sure you pack some plastic as well! (Any plastic kayak under 10' in length will be accepted, if you are a little over, that's ok, I just don't want wavehoppers, glass boats and such).

I have the course finalized, and it should make for some interesting, competitive boating. For example, from the start you can take the shorter thin line on far river left, or try to gain speed by hitting the main current on river right. There will be one large upstream "gate" to make sure you have some eddying skills, just below Corner Pocket.

We will arrange the heats to insure you will get to race more than once.

Prizes will be given to the winners!!! Plus, t-shirts to all who register.

Send me an email or IM if you have any questions.
