The third weekend of September is one of the largest kayaking events in California. Late season releases established by American Whitewater have provided the venue and river that set the stage for a weekend of good times. The North Fork Feather race is a great section of white water with many fun boofs and a great run to lap as many times as desired.
I had raced the Tobin section for the past 7 years but this year I really wanted to capture some aerial cinematography with my DJI Phantom. Props to everyone that raced and came out to support an amazing event this year and much gratitude to AW for all their work to make it happend. Apologies for the jello in some shots, I have since got a H3-2D gimbal so you can expect much smoother shots in the near future.
Enjoy the 100% GoPro Hero3+ edit and hope everyone is stoked on the changing seasons!
A short video of my time in the Maasai Mara. Thank you to wildlife film maker and guide Warren Samuels, who made this a trip of a lifetime, and helped me to get some pretty cool shots on the GoPro! Enjoy!

Matt Beechinor's (aka "Farmer") dream of 5 years is realized when he and Gavin McClurg fly out to the stunning and very rarely flown Pioneer Mountains in Sun Valley for an evening glass off and land at the Pioneer cabin, built in 1937. In the air they are joined by local pilots Nate Scales, Donnie Saver, and Charlie Karel. Matt and Gavin extend the dream and fly back to town the next day...and the journey continues.
