Each spring, a flock of whitewater athletes migrate to the rivers of Eastern Canada, in pursuit of the massive water flooding Ontario and Quebec as snow and ice thaw. What started as an unofficial gathering, has morphed into an annual expectation known as the Stakeout.

A decade ago it may have seemed every Canadian wave rideable by kayak had been found. Every freestyle maneuver revealed. But in the years since, the athletes of the Stakeout continue to discover monstrous big waves and push the progression of whitewater kayaking.

Dane Jackson’s short film is an ode to what the world’s elite whitewater athletes await in anticipation the moment the first snowflakes hit the ground in fall.
