1. Habitat a documentary by Ryan Scott & Hans Hoomans
    35 years of the progression of rafting in the Pacific Northwest

    This documentary takes you through the late 70's and early 80's with Shane Turnbull during his early years with commercial rafting and into the private boating scene. Pushing forward into the 90's with John Hall and AAA Rafting on the White Salmon River. Then into the private boating with Doc Loomis, Val Shaull, Jeff Bennett and David Sacquety. In 2008 the raft racing events spawned a new rush in the whitewater world. From 2008 to 2010 rafters in the Pacific Northwest ventured beyond the guidebooks and explored uncharted territory for rafts.
