Paul Gamache breaks Freefall Record (108 ft in BC)

Huge congratulations to Pacific Northwesty/ Nor Cali paddler Paul Gamache who recently broke the world free-fall record in BC. The full article is posted here on Huckin Huge and will be published in Kayak Session Mag. Paul is not only a very talented, ego-free kayaker, pushing the limits of the creeking and hucking but is also heavily involved as a volunteer with grass roots, conservation organisation, American Whitewater. If you’ve ever attended any AW kayak festivals in the Pac NW, Paul is most likely involved somewhere.  One of his new projects is the The Columbia Eexperience.,

In March 2009, Paul and a small group of paddlers will tackle over 1200 miles of the Columbia from Source to Sea, to highlight the impact of dams on the Columbia usage and water quality. Well worth checking out the blog and supporting this valuable project.
