I paddle off of waterfalls in a canoe, for a job. AMA
What's up Reddit!
My name is Chris Loomis, but more people know me as "Cheeks". I'm a whitewater canoeist and a filmmaker, and I typically make films about paddling canoes. This winter, I went to Costa Rica to paddle the amazing whitewater that country has. Unfortunately, due to the privatization of utility production, almost every river in Costa Rica is under threat of inundation, or is being dammed already. I made a video in hopes that showcasing the beautiful rivers down there might help save some of them.
PROOF: This is the most recent film I made about paddling in Costa Rica. It's got monkeys, poison dart frogs, and crocodiles too: VIDEO
This is an interview I just had with Canoe&Kayak magazine about said video: Interview with Canoe & Kayak
And this is me paddling off of a waterfall in a canoe: Ohiopyle Falls
I love to paddle off of waterfalls, and make films about paddling off waterfalls. Ask Me Anything!
EDIT 2: Happy to answer any more questions
