So I have been caved out up here in Mt. Shasta as we have been getting lots of snow in the past week and expect at least another foot by the end of the week. Sure as hell doesn’t feel like spring except the rivers are swollen and the lakes are full. I will be the first to admit that my play boating is the weakest aspect of my kayaking but this wave is fun no matter what your skill level. At normal flows this feature is a nasty low head dam but when Keswick Dam starts releasing at least 38,000 cfs or higher the Redding Wave forms. This happens about once ever 5 years, as the last time I surfed it was before I went to World Class Kayak Academy in 2006.
There are many exciting things happening round the SBP headquarters these days, most notably the new Click Pay View system developed by Huckin Huge. This past year Shasta Boyz toured with Huckin Huge and we are stoked to continue a partnership through the new year. In the next couple weeks Click Pay View will be available and LIVE. This means that Wet Dreams, Haymaker, Risen Sun, and many other leading action sports films will be available streaming live to your computer. These innovations are an industry first and SBP is stoked to be part of the REVOLUTION. Big ups to Huckin Huge for getting this ball rolling.
Another thing to get pumped about is that the first of 7 Slippery When Wet trailers will be done within the next week or so. That is right, seven trailers to feast your eyes on, each one focusing on one athlete in the film. The first athlete to be featured is non other than the killa’ himself, Team Liquidlogic athlete Evan Garcia. If you haven’t been keeping your eyes on Evan Garcia this kid has been going off for the past few years and continues to push our sport. A fellow WCKA grad; Evan Garcia embodies the word STEEZE, so be sure to keep posted cause when this thing drops its gonna be a banger. Here are a few shots from my holiday season and some screen shots from Evan Garcia’s new trailer.
The Royal Flush, Koosah, Sahalie, Skate Ramp, Graceland, Metloko, plus much much more to be featured in SBP’s new film, Slippery When Wet. We have an amazing crew for this next film and its cool to be producing a movie featuring some of my closest friends. More familiar faces you can expect to see in our new film SWW are: Ben Stookesberry, Chris Korbulic, Cody Howard, Shon Bollock, Knight Brothers (Devin and Ryan), and Drew Duval.
