North Idaho Creeking EP 18: The Mike Wooton Memorial Paddle
Tobias Scott Carleton put together a sweet edit of running the 5 sections of White Salmon on a Farmlands to Columbia run in a single day.

Fortunately all this season’s playboating paid off. Pirouette exit worked quite well. PS: it turns out there are rocks guarding the left edge of the hole in Bou...lder Garden on Canyon Creek at this level. #playboating #dryhairday #rodeo #whitewaterismagic #pnwet #kayaking #beatering #beater @beateroftheday
A great breakdown of process for a whitewater drop by Paul Meier.
Hydraulics are fascinating, It’s fun to study their shapes and patterns to see how your craft will react to an infinite variety of them. Entering with generous ...left angle, the plan is to exit right of center. A late stroke is just enough to lift the nose over the shoulder, as the hydraulic feeds left to right the boat moves laterally toward the more retentive side. Fortunately, enough momentum is maintained to escape its clutches, and the river allows downstream passage, a preferable trajectory.
When the creeks aren't running over here in North Idaho just yet, we drag the boats out into the backcountry and have some fun on our future whitewater. And if things couldn't get any better, we have a ton of snow and should be setting up for a fantastic paddling season.
Wind River Race coming soon! Come out and race, or just come spectate and cheer on your favorite competitor!
One SICK year in review! If this doesn't get you stoked for a weekend of shred, you don't like whitewater!
2017.... Man what a insane year you were. You gave me my biggest accomplishments, most fun times of my life, best new friends a person can have, but you also br...oke me down. You threw some of the hardest times at me, pushed my emotional levels to a place they had never been, and ultimately made me a better person. There will never be a year like you again. One I will truly hold in my heart forever! Big thanks to all my amazing friends and sponsors but I want to personally thank Johnny Chase, Carson Lindsay, Alec Voorhees, and Jordy Searle for being the best friends a guy can have. Also big shout out to Edward P Muggridge for being one of the most quality humans on earth and for using your editing wizardry to put this together! 2018 is off to an epic start. Let's see where she goes from here!
