End of BC Season!

What's up everyone!

Well its been a good long and sunny summer here in Whistler, good crew and a bunch of awesome boating! This summer season in BC has had one of the biggest turn out of kayakers this area has seen in a long time (if not ever!). So many crews from all over the show discovering the whitewater paradise we have here!! Basing yourself out of whistler you have too many choices on what classic section to paddle everyday. When the majority of rivers to be run are no more than 30 minutes out of town, we have some of the best after work runs in the world.

Just flicking through some of the best shots from this season,

               Big Freewheel! Another beautiful section just 5 minutes out of town on the Cheakamus.

As some of you may know we've planned and sorted out a 2 month long mission to Colombia. Flying out the 2nd of October, Jules, Dan Dunn and myself we arrive in Bogota after 2 days of traveling. Down there we will meet up with party pants Pete Lodge and Lachie Carracher. DREAM TEAM! Cant wait, confirmed adventure and lots of new horizons ahead. 3 days to go then its into the tropics!!!

Thank you everyone for the amazing season. This place never gets old!

Hasta Luego.
                                                   Thank you Obey for the Paddles this season!!
