    Took some time and pulled together some of my most memorable runs from the 2015 season!   It proved to be a big year with a ton of time on the water, and an equal amount of time on the road chasing new runs.

    Accumulating 3 swims this season, I was fortunate enough to suffer no real injuries or find myself in a dire situation.

    Over the course of the last year, I learned a lot about being safety conscious.  I believe one of the most important aspects of becoming a well rounded paddler stems from crew-awareness and overall risk assessment / management;  Know who you are paddling with;  Their strengths, their weaknesses, etc.

    Lastly, never under estimate the power of having a plan.  Talk things over with your crew.  In order to truly manage risk, groups need to evaluate ALL the possibilities of certain situations.    If you don’t have a solution to every potential problem that could arise, probably best to walk the beast!

    Enjoy and stay safe!

    Awesome edit of 2015! Looked like a great year! Quick question, it looks to me like you know your way around a gopro and I’m picking one up soon. Is Superview something you use or like with a helmet mounted cam on the river or is the Wide setting wide enough?

    THANKS!

      Thanks!  Truth be told I poke at my go-pro like a monkey trying to change various setting that I do not know too much about;     I believe I have it on wide setting, and I feel it captures the scenes pretty well…      If Levi reads this, he will certainly have more insight into what would be most optimal!
