Jessie Bohn is 16 years old. I remember kayaking with her parents Roy and Laura before she was born.
It has been really cool camping, kayaking and hanging out with her parents since she was a baby. As Jessie grew older, it was only natural that she started kayaking. Seeing her progress from a little tiny girl learning to roll to a really good kayaker has been a pleasure. She is a natural on the river and wanted to run the Embudo this Spring.
I went with her and her dad Roy and had a blast. Pretty awesome seeing a 16 yr old and her 56 year old dad charging down a beautiful granite gorge.
This is just a short vid of some rapids from the day. I'll get some more footage next year. My swimming abilities during this run prevented tons of footage from being shot :)
Look for Roy, Laura and Jessie on a river near you. They are some of the coolest people I have the pleasure of knowing. Cheers, Atom...
