Rachel's raft at GLOYF
Other than that i've just been working for Inland Surf Company, getting ready for the mish, and just now started some self-defense classes - Krav Maga if you were wondering

Probably the second coolest picture - you can see my poor paddling form (my hand is above my head - thats why we take pictures! to see this stuff) Oh and it looks alot smaller in the pic - the left side of the picture is part of the biggest wave that i go flying over. it was pretty big, trust me.
This is my crash landing after airing off the big wave. yes i was momentarily flushed underwater after this shot. you can see the top of the big wave just to the right of me. it doesn't look so big because you can't see the deep trough just on the other side of it.
Great pic in my opinion, the most artsy one Dad waiting for us to come around the bend. "Just around the river beeennnnddd!" a brilliant showcase of my poor paddling form once again. but a cool shot nonetheless. this is the beginning of Chief Parrish, in my opinion the wimpiest of the named rapids. Though it doesn't seem to be a constriction rapid so i bet it's shallowish and has some rocks that wouldn't agree with an upside-down kayaker's head. but i have no idea really
ah this one shows how my boat is almost a squirt boat - as in it's underwater alot.
the coolest picture i think - i look pretty hardcore with my goggles, or like i'm doing the wrong extreme sport - take your pick
so i'll try putting the two videos on in another blog - might take a bit they're slightly large
