Back before GoPro existed, people still carried small video cameras around in waterproof cases in their boats. This video is from that era. The author, Jeff Strang, was a tremendous local boater and all-around terrific human being. Unfortunately, Jeff died on Harris Creek in 2007. For those who have run the upper section of the Gordon river, the ‘memorial rock’ just below the put-in is in his honour.
This is a video he made around 2005/2006 highlighting some of excellent runs on our Island as well as some great (now old-timer) boaters from that time period.
