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.
