XTERRA Adventures Filmed Bend, Oregon Stand Up Paddlers
The XTERRA crew visited Bend, Oregon for an adventure race and shot some stand up paddle boarding footage on the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District. Thanks to everyone who made it to the XTERRA Adventures photo shoot last fall. We were scheduled to be out of town that weekend and after putting the word out, were relieved to know that many of you local paddlers hit the water for the camera crew.
Some of the local paddlers in the film include: Dennis Oliphant (and his dog), Ron Thompson (and his dog, Lucy), Kerie Raymond, Jason Bowerman and Cptn. Sawdust (aka Bob Jumper). If you see anyone else you know, let me know and I'll put their names on this list.
This stretch of the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon is a favorite fitness paddle for local paddlers. From the Colorado Bridge upstream to the Healy Bridge and back is about a 45-60 minute paddle, just enough for a quick trip on the water.
