Bob Putnam, Owner of Deep Cove Kayak decided it was time to take his Epic V8 Surfski out on the famous Skookumchuk Tidal Rapids and they decided to bring along David O'Brian who works freelance as a videographer and digital animator. The footage turned out so good they decided to turn it into a mini commercial for Deep Cove Kayaks and Epic.

Skook Classified: The Journey

CanoeKayak.com just posted part two of their ongoing series called Skook Classified. Episode 2: The Journey is a great little short film telling the story of The Hurricane Riders putting together Skookfest, an invite-only extreme rough water sea kayaking event in the tidal rapids at Skookumchuck Narrows , B.C which took place this past October.

Speaking of rough water, make sure you take some time and check out foampile.com which is a really great website filled with the greatest rough water sea kayaking videos on the net. It’s curated by both The Hurricane Riders and Nick Castro from Active Sea Kayaking.

If you have always wanted to paddle Skook but feel you don’t have enough skills or guts, Nick from Active Sea Kayaking is going to be offering training in April and June of 2013. The multi-day course is focusing specifically on sea kayak surfing and paddling in tidal currents. Nick promises that things will start off gently than build up from there. Sounds awesome.

Check out the quick video below:
