Well folks, sorry for the lack of updates during that rainy spell there. I left the Forks and headed south to meet up with a few boaters from UMF. The first day we did some driving and found ourselves some big water. Our first stop was the Madison surf wave which was too high to be retentive enough to play on however the rapids upstream were SAUCED. Paul and I decided to fire it up, RockStar style. Then we headed to the Carrabassett just north of North Anson where Katie’s Crotch Rd crosses the river. Found some more goods there.
The next day we woke up early and drove straight to Smalls Falls / Chandler Mill Stream (located off rt 4 on the way to Rangeley from Farmington). This time we brought a fleet of cameras. Spencer Mendell was our principal cinematographer and he was killing it manning all three cameras, running up and down the shoreline. Paul nailed the edit and we had a blast filming / sending all morning.
Said and done it was an epic three days of boating and chasing water. Before the rain hit I made it over to the Big Air 420 Rodeo and learned of potential for a whitewater park in Westbrook. Edits and info on both of those coming soon. LET IT RAIN!
Big thanks to Jeff Pawling, Spencer Mendell and Paul for getting the shots and making it happen and also Paul for banging out the awesome edits.
