South Silver


2010
07.12

This past Saturday a solid group of us got out to get on South Silver before it ran out of water.  We managed to catch it with around 50-60 cfs.  It was a bit low but it was still good to go 100%.  For those of you who don’t know about this run it is Disneyland for kayakers.  It drops 700 feet per mile and is actually very safe.  The clean granite makes for some of the most fun you can have in a boat.  Enjoy the video!

My new squirt boat!

I finally got my new squirt boat, and I am in love.  The great folks at Murky Water built me a Ninja.  It is unreal!  It has been over 15 years since I was last in a squirt boat, and i can not figure out why it has taken me so long to get another.  I know that from hear on out I will make sure I have one.  Here is a short video my friend Ty made with his I -Phone.  Not bad quality for a phone.  This spot is on the Truckee river, but we we are starting to lose water and it is losing its power.  I was still able to milk it for a few 9-10 second rides.  We also managed to make three very tired dogs in the process.  Enjoy.

West Walker

The west Walker is a non stop roller coaster ride!  Noah, Newt, and I ran it a few weeks back with around 1000 cfs.  We managed to run 11 river miles in just a few minutes over one hour.  You really get to put your rear and run skills to the test with this run.  It has a wide range of levels that it is good at.  We were on the high side of medium with our flow.  Enjoy the video.

Sierra City, North Yuba river

I have had this footage on the computer for a while, but I have been slack on putting it together.  The video actually covers a number of different sections of the North Yuba.  It is everything below loves falls to Downieville.  In order from top to bottom we have Wild Plum, Sierra City, Ladies Canyon, and Boss Moss.  I am about 90% sure of that sequence.  We covered about 12 miles in all and it was a great day.  Now that the water is dropping it will be time to move up stream to Loves Falls.  Enjoy the video.
