Chilcotin SUP Adventure- Video

The trick to living in the mountains is balancing your work with your play, or ideally, combining the two. Mountain Life publishers Jon Burak and Todd Lawson, along with writer/photographer Jim Martinello, recently headed up to the Chilcotin Plateau for a little SUP whitewater.

The boys are the C4 Explore Team and they did their trip on inflateable SUPs with all their gear (including more than $15,000 in camera equipment) lashed to the boards.

“The riverlevel was pretty high,”Lawson says. “And it was pretty dicey with many large logs floating past as we paddled. We hit mostly class III rapids and got into many sustained sections that required ultimate concentration.”

After 4 days and 4 nights on the river they made it home safely andwere able to knock together this video of a job well done.
