Pat Kellars head-cam video running his new kayak... I know, I know, I said "kayak" but you HAVE to see this video. You might never-ever run this river and this is as close as you might get, I even felt water splashing me in the face now and then as I kicked back and watched Pat kick it into gear.... totally freakin' awesome! :D

Dang he was flying down the river! The way he ran through there with no hesitation, I'd say he knows that river pretty well ;)

With this film and the last one on the green by bubba cboater, I've come to the conclusion that creeking's easy. -yawn-

That boat is SO fast! Pat is a great paddler - and it's good to see great paddlers roll even on familiar rivers. I just wish there weren't cuts in the video so that you could time it and see just how fast he is.

I think it's great that they designed a boat for the Green race.

that is some of the most awesome yet intense small creek footage I have ever seen. that was just amazing to see. It looks like a great time, albeit I could not do all of the moves upright, it just looks like a ton of fun.
