Video: ‘On the James with Mitch’

Andy Thompson

October 15, 2015 2:28pm

This awesome video features two of our favorite people: local photographer, videographer and RichmondOutside contributor Elli Morris and Riverside Outfitters raft guide/jack-of-all-trades Mitch Davis.

Davis shows his skills at whitewater standup paddleboarding, navigating Richmond’s gnarly downtown rapids . He talks about the importance of clean water, how it is everyone’s responsibility, and why it matters to him particularly as  a SUP’er. Davis also discusses the value of waterparks and why such a park would be beneficial along the Falls of the James. This is the beginning of a series of interviews from Morris on people sharing a particular goal they have for the health of the James River. The video premiered a couple of weeks back at Films on the Floodwall.

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?
