best cboating online videos

Post by oldschoolpiton » Mon May 11, 2015 8:56 am

hey guys, so as I continue to cboat I want to be able to watch other people do it as well. at least where I am, it's not exactly the most overly popular way to boat and watching others run hard rapids inspires me to want to do so as well. I kayaked for 6 years already and maybe about a year of that was spent "playing" around in different cboats. i've decided I like the single blade style better and have fully committed to mostly just cboating now, trying to run the level of difficulty of rivers I have in a kayak in a cboat now. current goal is running the green narrows(run a bunch in a kayak). I have run the big 3 before but I don't care if i run them in my c1 ever. i just want to be out on the river regularly and feel comfortable...anyways i digress, my entire point of posting this is to ask, what are your favorite/most inspiring whitewater cboating online videos that you like to watch out there. preferably free ones at this point although i am looking at buying "the canoe movie". whatever you watch out there that gets you psyched for cboating, would you mind sharing those videos with me so i can watch them too and get psyched? this might sound silly to some, however i just find it fun and informative watching how others with more experience cboating handle difficult situations on the river. like i said before, i don't have a lot of cboaters to boat with. thanks for your time out there yall and safe travels!

One of my all time favorites:

Another good one for technique, however dated, is the C1 Challenger (from the 80's...), however I've not found it online.

There are some Canoe Movie clips, but it is worth spending the $ for the entire Canoe Movie I and II DVDs
Keep the C!

Probably not textbook technique, but this always gives me a grin:

The OUT Race, ALF 2014 is impressive in term of the sheer number of OC1.

Furtrapper Phil doing enders in a canoe shows you that it's not only an young man sport.

Green Truss and Celestial Falls shows lush green creek walls and vivid colours and video image not to mention superb canoeing skills. Brad M sure can boat well.

I've always been a big fan of the "Cross Strokin'" series. You can find them on Vimeo.

If you poke around with the tags and who has liked the videos you can usually find lots of good canoe videos. Enjoy.

Some solid cboating and a good song. Looks like a fun river.
