Streetfighter on the Kern River

We just had an awesome weekend on the Kern – three days of paddling, rock dodging, hole boofing, swan diving fun! Five of us, including Adam Cumming, John Stalone, Terry Pitts and Olympic kayaker Eric Giddens ran three sections of the kern at 450cfs. This is low water, making many of the lines very tricky, and consequences high for mistakes. But we’re all fitted with full face helmets, back protectors and full body armor, so who cares right? Well, ask the boys how their hips feel as they limp about. I also managed to smash my Drift camera into the rocks and totally destroy it (booo). But all said and done, it was a fantastic weekend, and we put the Boof Buddy and new flip up skeg to the test – with thumbs up results from all!
