Sean Morley and Marty Cronin of Jackson Kayak pulled up to our house and we unloaded and outfitted 3 brand new Karma RG's. Our friend Bryant Burkhardt came out to paddle and help with the video project.
Whitewater expedition kayaker Ben Stookesberry was the videographer for the project.
The Mendocino Coast was a perfect testing ground for the RG as an whitewater ocean play boat. We put the it through the paces in Mendocino's rock gardens riding pour-overs, surfing waves, traversing through technical areas, and paddling through sea caves.
On day two of our adventure, Chicken Point was firing!!! A 20 second period west swell was stacking up 15 foot walls. There was definitely some chickening out, some carnage, and some spectacular rides.

Enough ado about making the video - you gotta watch it!!!
This video embodies a lot of what we love about our home waters of Mendocino County - whitewater, surf, rock gardens, beauty and shows off a new boat that we are really excited about. We hope you enjoyed watching it - we sure had fun making it.
