Awesome! Huge air, huge drops, and stomach dropping carnage. Best 10 minutes of paddle porn I have seen in a long time.

Stunning carnage, too. Todd and Fred were only good luck and good buddies away from getting themselves killed.

Woah, I've never seen anything like Fred's disappearing act. Pretty crazy. Where was that?

Seems like this leaves out lots of great paddlers doing amazing stuff and not sure about some of the picks. Nonetheless, this is an awesome snapshot of drops and tricks over the year and super entertaining to watch. Nice work and big thumbs up.

Ya Fred's carnage entry was disgusting, it's somewhere in Chile.

I partly agree with you about paddlers being left out. I felt like I was watching a highlight segment of Frontier and the White Water Grand Prix. That being said both of those had loads of incredible paddling in them.

And Natalie, you would have cleaned up some awards this year for sure if you had entered some videos.

Does anyone know who actually judges this? It says judged by "your peers." It doesn't really matter but I think it would be cool to see who the chosen ones are.

Very cool video, although I almost had a siezure listening to that music. Lots of big waterfalls in there, i want to see some of the sick ass boulder garden/big water stuff getting run make this list, how does jakes at 9000 not even make the video? I thought rushes line on tomato 2 was fuckin sick when you think of how many people fuck that drop.
I think anyone could vote, you just had to become a fan or something on facebook

The judging was done by selected kayakers like steve fisher and rush. I feel like it was biased towards Tribe riders, but i guess thats the way it goes.
