Matador contributor Shon Bollock and his crew the Shasta Boyz are releasing trailers from Shon’s new movie Slippery When Wet. Each trailer spotlights a different athlete from the movie. The first up is Evan Garcia. He has one of my favorite taglines of all time at his blog:
The love of kayaking has overcome my desire to make money, go to school, or do anything but go boating. This is my life.
Straight up. I love following these kids’ progressions. This crew is running stuff that makes the hardest shit we ran a decade ago (Big Creek, West Prong, the Green) look class III.

Bigup Shon, this looks really sweet.
