This is my friend, David Hughes. On May 13, 2017 the New River Dries were at the prime level to surf the famous “put in waves.” Somewhere in the neighborhood of 50,000 cfs, the river makes a huge standing wave on river right. David threw down this huge air screw and I was fortunate to be there to capture it.
Whitewater kayaking has been my passion since 1997. I moved to West Virginia to become a raft guide and a kayaker. It’s exciting to capture the same passion in other kayakers.
