The Stikine footage upsets my stomach. You can see the power in the funny water. I'd be dead within the first few minutes in that place. Definitely view in HD.

Just watched again

That is full on. I don't think I've ever encountered that kind of continuos class five big water. A couple of those rapids look like they go on for a mile. Lateral holes that eat you like that. Just awesome. Where do you practice for that in North America?

I think my favorite shot is when the red white and blue boat enters a fall, he hits his boof already over the lip, and angles it perfect. Very nice.

This one certainly made my day!

Canada you train by running shit way over the recommended level. Looks like quality for sure.. stokine doesn't look like the beast everybody talks it up to be.. Gary e when you gonna get it I hear you are itching for it.. either way I think the ill goods up this way have dropped in 2 good level if somebody wants to do some Cronic boating. Be quality for sure

The Payette has more padding.

I've never been there anything near flood however. I think you could practice big water hole punching and hole escapes and all that, but those rapids seem longer. Look how long it runs after he gets caught in that pour over and makes it out. It would have been an epic swim in the middle of nowhere if he hadn't punched out. Would love to here his story and if it flushed him or he just found the right paddle stroke. Imagine how tired you would be after that hole ride and then have to finish that rapid. Simply awesome stuff!

Casper, the Stikine is all that and more. Check out the other side of the equation;
