Here's a fun video!  Team Jackson Kayak has a blast in Newfoundland, Quebec and Niagara Gorge.  Young paddlers are featured - Nick Troutman (producer of this video), Rafael Ortiz, Dane Jackson, Evan Garcia, Jason Craig & Joel Kowalski.  The whitewater is big & beautiful, especially the run on the very illegal Niagara Gorge.  An entertaining and fairly heinous carnage section is included too!

Entertaining and visually impressive, this is also great inspiration for kids!

EJ's River Running :: Basics

90 minutes 2005

Retail $29.95 Yours for $26.95

EJ does a great job of explaining the basic knowledge & moves for river running.  Filmed on the Tellico, North Chickamauga, Chattooga & Nantahala rivers, this video contains clear talk, good examples of features and techniques, and diagrams overlaid on the video.  The three sections include choosing equipment (with the focus on boats), features and techniques, and safety.  Master creeker Clay Wright handles the safety discussion, while world champion playboater and Olympic slalom competitor Eric Jackson handles the technique discussion.

Filmed & edited by Chris Emerick, it has his usual professional style.  The audio quality stands out head and shoulders above the lighting.

This advanced river running video includes some pieces (like safety) from the basics video.  But it is intended for kayakers with some experience.  Topics include boofing, reading harder water, dealing with rocks, holes, long rapids, waterfalls and slides.  Filmed on North Chickamauga, Caney Fork, Tellico, Chattooga and Tallulah, the scenery makes this instructional as easy to watch as it is informative.
