When we created an under 21 division, we knew the Young Guns would come in, barrels blazing, and set the bar for creativity. They did not disappoint! Remember these names, we're sure you'll be hearing more from all of them soon!

Last Friday night, the Hood River and local paddling communities came out in force to celebrate their own and to raise money for an amazing cause, First Descents! An estimated 250 people ate, drank, cheered for their friends and learned how First Descents can profoundly affect the lives of young adults "Out Living" cancer.
We're already looking forward to next year's event (and hope you film makers are as well) but thought we'd share some of the video highlights from this year's winners! And remember you can always join us in supporting First Descents at firstdescents.org or by volunteering with a camp that's local to you.
The Amateur division winners are:
3rd Place - Dan Patrinellis (this is an edit of the film shown at the Film Fest):

Congats again to all of our Amateur division winners and stay tuned for our Young Gun division winners!

We have yet to see the shades they're dropping off, but we're sure they'll keep our winner looking stylie on and off the water.
Thanks, Zeal, for hooking up our Young Guns & helping raise funds for First Descents!
