The Friday's Fresh Finds have become a great way to highlight the content generated in our local Virginia community, like kayaking fishing and whitewater kayaking. I strive to find good stuff from local paddlers, but occasionally I reach outside our region. The other reason for highlighting videos, blogs and photos on Friday is to provide some inspiration and psyche as we roll into the weekend. At least that is why I originally started surfing the web for great content in the first place. So here is what caught my attention this week. There is a lot of whitewater kayaking in this week's post!
Rush Sturges recently joined the Jackson Kayak team. Rush makes amazing videos and this brief explanation of why he moved is definitely amazing.
Shane Groves, Wave Sport Kayaks paddler, lives in my old stomping grounds, Fayetteville,WV, home of the New River Gorge and the Gauley River. Here he is on the Gauley in the gorgeous fall weather.
From Dagger Kayaks : "This year, over 50 women gathered to paddle the Green River in North Carolina, to build the female paddling community and honor Shannon Christy. Check out the inaugural Green River Takeover!" This is a pretty cool thing.
Kayak Kevin, Rob Choi and Lee Williams of Ocean Kayak sit down and provide a DVD commentary to the freshly released Chesapeake Bay 3 : Cold Water Species Kayak Fishing from Kayak Kevin. If you're somehow unaware, Kayak Kevin has been putting out awesome DVDs for years. Now you can watch the DVD and listen to these three share the secrets behind the scenes. Pretty cool!
