Next installment in ‘James River Video Atlas’ arrives

August 12, 2014 · 0 minute read

Back in April we posted the first installment in a video series from Hunter Davis, Ben Moore and Home on the James — a mini-feature on Pipeline Rapid in downtown Richmond.

Well, now the local paddlers, moviemakers and James River lovers are back with their next feature. This one highlights First Break, a Class II rapid and the the first major one you’ll encounter when entering the downtown section of whitewater in Richmond. It’s a fun/easy wave train with a great surf feature just off the northern tip of Belle Isle.

Davis and Moore hope to work through all the major named rapids on the Falls of the James, and we’ll feature all of them here as they do. The final product will be what Davis calls the “James River Video Atlas,” and it will be sweet.
