Whats up world of whitewater. Cody Howard here, from Huckin Huge dot com and the CKS Squad. I've just returned from back to back weekend madness & filming for the upcoming feature, The Risen Sun. First was Vancouver Island. I received the thumbs up from C&K Scotty and Ben Hawthorne (of Seattle) about this wonderful little place in BC. Quick packing details were situated and behold,FRIENDLY AIRPORT STAFF!! -allowed my "wave ski" on board! Sweet! So landing in Seattle with a lay over day spent snowboarding on Mt. Baker with some "war buddies" was a good start to an action packed V.I. trip.
And you may notice a little something......-Peak UK's new "Creek Jacket". I absolutely love this bad boy. It's padded shoulders, back, elbows & utlra durable X4 material, makes for the ultimate dry top for creeking. Check it more details HERE and for sale at...CKS. Here is a review. My .02 = kick ass product. Finally!

Day One. No time for scouting. - Harris Creek
Just another classic V.I. B.C. boof.

Routing out of Harris' roadside action.
Oh, and then it snowed. Everywhere. The Canoe and Kayak Van kicked ass though.
A classic run out to the road.
So V. Island summed up was....we got there and found out we were flying solo. So we drove over bridges looking for waterfalls. Put onto whatever we could get out hands on, and ran the $h!t. Dropped into one the local Ports and partied all night....and then woke up for some more inescapable gorges with unrun-unrunnable waterfalls. I'll leave you with a parting shot of me sitting below a sequence of a 25ft to 45(?) fter that has still yet to be run(?).....get some (with more agua and cohones).
My favorite shot. Enjoying a moment of peace below Leap of Faith Gorge.
