Check out all the quality content coming from our community of paddlers, both whitewater kayaking and kayak fishing. Tune in, read up and get psyched. This is the Friday's Finds, where we seek to highlight some of the paddlers who call Virginia home. PaddleVa is about all of us. While some of the stuff shared in these posts will come from outside our waters, Virginia will always be the primary focus.
I ran into the Pyranha Kayaks crew at EORA in Greenville and they showed me this sweet video of Dave Fusilli, Demshitz, surfing Skookumchuck in a Pyranha Hammer. This is some sick footage and there is a zombie.
Rob Choi, Ocean Kayak Pro, has been busy doing that upstanding husband/father work, and so some would expect his skillz to drop off a bit when it comes to the art of kayak fishing. Nope. Not even remotely possible. Rob's got crazy good skills, like the forever kind. He got out recently and just slayed them. Get the full story by clicking the link below the pic.

I came across this cool video of Team Badfish getting their whitewater SUP action on in Montana. This looks like a lot of fun.
Drew Camp, Jackson Kayak Pro, always seems to come up big when he hits the water. I call him the gamer. His kayak fishing game is mad strong, and he celebrates the kind of success that comes from hard work and elite level skillz. Click the link below the photo for Drew's latest adventure and tournament victory.

Astral Designs just released a super cute video, featuring our Astral Rep Spencer's son, Mason. He talks us through Astral's youth PFD, the Otter. Check it out.
Once again Josh Dolin and Grant Alvis of Peelin' Drag Extreme Fishing continue to kill it. These two guys might be the most under-the-radar, superstars in kayak fishing. They target and catch trophy fish on the regular. Grant recently joined Team Hobie Fishing, but Josh is still out there, up for grabs. He currently fishes out of a Jackson Kayak Big Tuna and does work! seriously, I was just talking with another industry professional about how these guys haven't blown up yet, and how surprising that fact is to those in the know. Check out their work following this pic of Grant's monster summertime musky. Find out why we always hype these boys up, they do work.
