GAULEY CARNAGE KICKOFF

A mashup of clips from Gauley Fest 2010 in West Virginia.

Clips include kayaker sliding off Pillow Rock, carnage at Sweet Falls, Pillow Rock, Iron Ring, Lost Paddle (get ejected after hitting Hawaii Five Oh head on), whitewater rafting cams (raft cam), underwater footage, the late night fight club RUCKUS beat down, the Halftime String Band and other festival shenanigans.

Outro clip is underwater footage from where we all went for a swim at the top of Lost Paddle...the Gauley Rivers longest Class V rapid. It made for a great yard sale and a VERY long swim for some of us!

Gauley Fest just keeps getting bigger and better! Started in 1983 to celebrate the derailment of a hydro-electric project that would have disrupted the flows on the Gauley River, Gauley Fest has grown to become the largest river festival in the world.

The festival is a showcase for American Whitewater and the top whitewater vendors in the boating community, plus it's THE place to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and just have a great time with like-minded river loving folks.

Plus, **BONUS FOOTAGE** Washington Redskins Game

After rafting went to season opener Redskins-Cowboys game where the game went down to the final play. Captured funny footage of Cowboy fans sitting in front of us thinking they had just won the game (celebrating like they had won the Super Bowl or something) when they had actually just LOST the game because a penalty was called. Love seeing Cowboy fans cry like the Cowgirls they really are!
