Astral: Limited Edition Green Vest

For the past few years I have been stoked to be wearing Astrals gear and this is yet another reason to get fired up for this roots company. There will be 100 limited edition jackets of each design made throughout the winter, so thats right....... there will be tons of styles for everyone to customize their hucking.

This is the first design they will run and will be shipping in December, so make sure to get out their and pick up your own custom green vest that are made right here in the United States. Click here to reserve yours.......

I am super fired up for these vests and put in a suggestion to make a Cali edition, Limited vest based on the California Republic flag. Hopefully the suggestion goes through and keep your eyes out for these new vests.

The New GoPro HD

So this footie was hot off the press from the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, UT. It was the official release and showing of the new GoPro HD helmet camera. I haven't been able to release this footage because GoPro wanted to release footage in a orderly manor.

This thang is going to take over......period. I have not ever seen a waterproof camera with such clarity and high frame rate. It has four options for your frame rates and shoots in 1080p. This allows your slow motion to be baby butt smooth with no dragging or distortion.

I got the pleasure of testing the proto's of this camera and have been quite impressed. Here is some footage from the Upper Klamath that they showed at the GoPro booth. Enjoy and get fired up for crystal clear HD hucking.

Five Ten. Aboard.

So the water is getting scarce here in Cali but I am getting excited for the winter expeditions. This is just a quick update to announce that Five Ten picked me up for the season. Its an honor to get to paddle for this company because I honestly believe they make the best and most aggressive kayaking shoes on the market. Big shout out to everyone at Five Ten and thanks for continuing to support the kayak industry.

Here is a photo of the world renowned Canyoneer:

Currently I am working on a promo video for the UCSC kayak club and really fired up to work with some new boaters this season. We have a big trip planned for January and it is looking very promising. All the info on it is yet to be released but the word is that it's on an island......

N. Feather Festival and Tobin Race

So things have been pretty busy with school and the ever growing UCSC kayak club down here in Santa Cruz. Recently we got to escape for a weekend to attend the 2009 Tobin Race. The event was a lot of fun and it was great to see all the boyz. It had a great turn out and a solid set of competition. Special thanks to American White Water for putting it on.

Just coming off my mtn bike injury from this summer I was lucky to take 10th place in short boat but it felt good just to paddle. My good friend Justin Patt took 1st place in Short Boat, Rush Sturges snatched 1st in Long Boat, and Katie Scott cleaning up the Women's Long Boat. The first day at fish flows I pinned super bad and had my first swim in 4 years but it was good to get another bootie out the way. Enjoy the footie and make sure to get out there next year.
