This is the edit from footage shot at the 7th year of the Upper Wind Whitewater Festival. The race course section of the Wind River is a roughly 20-30 minute mass start event of adrenaline fueled Class IV - V paddling, and includes rafts as well as kayakers from all over the Pacific Northwest.

This year brought *perfect* river levels, fantastic weather, and a large turnout of competitive whitewater junkies. For complete event details, go to:
