RichmondOutside, Home on the James launch new video series

April 26, 2014 10:18am

We like Hunter Davis and Ben Moore because they’re always hustling — and because few people know the James River like these two whitewater paddlers. Moore runs the standup paddleboarding program at Riverside Outfitters. Davis has a lot of irons in the fire, including Home on the James, where, among other things, he posts tremendous videos focusing on America’s Founding River.

The above video — “Pipeline” — is the beginning of a partnership between RichmondOutside.com, Davis and Moore. The “James River Video Atlas,” will comprise short videos of all of the the rapids in the falls of the James, from Bosher’s Dam to the Pipeline. We’ll showcase the videos here in the News Blog as they’re released, then they’ll live in our Paddling page and the appropriate Destinations pages. There you’ll be able to click on any rapid and watch the video of Moore and Davis talking about it and running it in their paddleboards and kayaks.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
