Hooked up with legendary extreme kayaking action figure "Kayak Joe" for a photo-shoot. He expressed his interest in a first descent down the Rollins Branch, a short, very fast and steep section of whitewater he had been eyeing & dreaming about for a little while. A perfect opportunity for he and I to get together and document this epic session.

"BIG DROP" by far the most extreme vertical drop Kayak Joe has ever attempted. measuring in at around 28 inches! With no fear Kayak Joe throws the biggest Wave-Wheel of his career over Big Drop with perfect execution and the success of another perfect day on the water comes to an end.
