Fresh off some BC fun with the boyz I give you the $oul Rich series. My buddies Tim,Sean and I rallied up to BC for a week of debauchery and kayaking. We were greeted by great water levels,awesome people and stellar scenery! In the few days I was able to be up in BC we were able to hit a different river everyday which provided for an awesome variety of whitewater and a good opportunity to check out some of the classic BC runs such as Callaghans,Rogers and Upper Cheak!

Sometime in Mid July myself and the rest of demshitz found ourselves looking down on Hamma Hamma Falls on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. This is a beautiful drop if all goes well. A 20 foot waterfall committing you very quickly to a 50- 60 foot waterfall just below. The first 20 footer is a very tricky move,and messing this waterfall up could be tragic. Well,in this video it was as close as I want to be to tragic. All’s well that end’s well though eh….
This trip to Washington state was super entertaining. At the end of a few weeks of creaking demshitz ran, Exit rapid –Tumwater Canyon, Log Choke falls- Top Tye, Alpine Falls- Top Tye, Ernies Canyon- where 3 of demshitz styled a very seldom run drop called hot tub, Graves Creek, and Hamma hamma falls. After it was all said and done this was the damage. 5 broken or lost paddles,7 swims,and 2 cave sessions. All and all it was a great trip though. My favorite of all of these hucks and runs would be Hamma hamma Falls and Ernie’s canyon.
This boat was absolutely ridiculous at Skook this year! I know it’s far for most of you ,but if demshitz get the chance to go surf this sick wave it is a must do! Thanks for the edit Bren!

July 13th demshitz Team Pyranha will be doing a video/ kayaking clinic in association with Alder Creek Kayak shop! Learn from Team Pyranha paddlers Dave Fusill,Craig Kleckner,US Team member Mike Patterson,and UK team member Bren Orton.
The idea is this..
You take us down your local run and we give you tips on videoing and help with kayaking skills.
- video some rapids while explaining how we try to get the best possible shot. We will explain simple video skills such as light,angle,getting a steady shot,and framing a shot.
- breaking down a rapid. This could be making the rapid really easy,or really hard,finding a small eddy to catch or a nice rock to splat.
- Helping you with any paddling skills you may need. Forward stroke,cartwheel,loops,creeking skills,whatever you are after we are skilled in that area.
Hope to see you there!
