I’M CONTINUALLY STOKED at how far the next generation of boaters is pushing the progression not just of whitewater paddling but the way they’re filming it. In this video, filmmaker Andy Maser captures a day in the life of kayaker Evan Garcia, and what it means to wake up and move through a day you know will converge at the moment you launch off the lip of a stout drop.
Definitely check out more work from Andy Maser, including some of his recent filming of the dam-removal process on Washington’s Elwha River.
Also check Bomb Flow for more ridiculous whitewater footage. In their own quiet way, these guys are some of the strongest athletes on the planet.
