Over 50 women met to paddle the Upper Green, and 24 continued down the Class V Green Narrows section. A raffle was held, in which over $650 was raised for the Shannon Christy Fund, a fund dedicated to getting more women into paddlesports. It was an amazing day, well captured by this video from Gareth Tate, Robby Hogg, and Daniel Brassuell. Enjoy!
Tom Janney's very sobering account of his descent of the North Fork of the San Joaquin, which included a devestating injury to paddler Thomas Moore. Stay safe out there! http://thenexthorizonline.blogspot.com/2014/08/mistakes-we-knew-we-were-making.html
While we were at Outdoor Retailer, Rapid Media TV stopped by to chat with Snowy Robertson, Dagger's lead designer, about the new Dagger Roam. If you were looking to learn more about this boat from the guy who designed it, check out this video.
Dagger athletes Aniol Serrasoles, Todd Wells, Galen Volkhausen, and Iker Van Dusen competed, and Aniol took third in the waterfall competition. It was a great showing by the world's best kayakers. Todd Wells shot some amazing video, here: Faces of Rey Del Rio from Mountain Mind Collective on Vimeo .
This year over 160 competitors battled snow, freezing temperatures, and a monkey in the quest for the glass. Congratulations to champions Isaac Levinson and Adriene Levknecht. Notable Dagger finishes were Andrew Holcombe taking fifth, Chris Gragtmans taking ninth only three months out of shoulder surgery, and Dagger's quality control manager Wade Harrison finishing tenth! Way to go!
