Video just in from Pascal Schaffner… The backstory, from Schaffner: “During summer 2009 and 2010 in Norway, I had the privilege to film and learn from Matze Brustmann. His virtuous paddling style is unique among the best of our trade. In 2010, I was able to film his successful first descent of the Brureslret waterfall at the Store Ula.”
Meanwhile, in Costa Rica recently, Chris Baer and Todd Wells got some first descents on the Rio Chirripo Pacifico.
