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.

More fun with the Go-Pro in the Reno whitewater park!

With all of the water that we have had in the Sierra, not only has the creeking been great but we have had a bunch of fantastic play as well.  Noah and I decided to attach the Go-Pro to an old tent pole to see what we could do.  The footage is not bad, but we now know what we need to do to make it better.  A more rigid pole to attach the camera to that will extend further out over the hole will be the trick!  As for now enjoy the show!

Fun flows on the Truckee!

We have had some really nice flows on the Truckee over the past few weeks.  It has given the Reno community the ability to get out and enjoy all of the different sections of river that we don’t normally get to boat on.  I was able to get a few laps on the upper sections of my new home river for the first time.  It only took me 4 years!  The upper sections have a bunch of non stop class 3 with one or two easy class 4 rapids thrown in for good measure.  There are also a pair of totally safe and fun to run dams.  I know it sounds bad, but they are really good to go and they are a great time.  Enjoy the video!
