Whitewater Kayaker Sam Grafton Fires It Up in 2012

Here’s another one from the video chronicles of Dan Patrinellis – highlights of local whitewater kayaker Sam Grafton running all sorts of incredibly huge and difficult stuff in 2012.  Some of the drops are on Tumwater Canyon (Wenatchee River), Top Tye Creek, Robe Canyon (Stillaguamish River), Skykomish River, the Chelan Gorge, and some BC runs (pretty sure I saw 50 50 on the Ashlu in there).

If you’re not familiar with the difference between Go Pro view and actually paddling the stuff, keep in mind as you watch this that the waves and features are way bigger in reality than they look on the helmet cam.  And most of these look pretty huge on helmet cam.
