Tom and Kelby going big
So im back home now and I must say its good to be here! Its been a tough year with injury but at least I'm home now to deal with it all! Lately I have been editing a bunch of footage and getting things lined up to start shooting my next film which I'm stoked about! Although not on the river im still getting fired up about the River as people update their blogs and today I got a cool message from a family I met in 2007 on the American River. The Senter family booked a day rafting with Chris at Action Whitewater Adventures and I was the guide for the day. We had a wicked time and they were a super cool family to take rafting, They seemed pretty interested in what I do and we spent the day sharing stories about adventures. At the end of the day I gave them this blog address and wished them the best! They replied with some emails saying "Thank you for a great adventure in the River. We looked at your site .....YOU ARE CRAZYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!." We shared a few emails since until today when I got a message from Tom Senter with some photos of their latest trip to the Feather River in California. Since our day in 2007 Kelby (son) and Tom (dad) have decided to learn to kayak and are loving it! Kelby is almost 13 and already firing up some big drops but also learning Slalom and Down River Racing too which is great to hear! Definatly a kid to watch out for in the future of kayaking! Cheers Senter Family! Cheers for the photos and Keep it up!
