Each spring, the All-Outdoors guide community comes together for raft guide training on some of the best spring whitewater California has to offer. Many lessons are passed down and the AO family bonds strengthen as we prepare for the rafting season ahead. The days spent rafting on the Class V California Salmon River make for a memorable rafting trip for guests and an inspiring experience for both new and veteran guides.

Jack Armstrong

Jack grew up 35 minutes from AO headquarters, and is the grandson of our founder, George. His education includes a film degree and art studies from Biola University, as well as lots of experience breaking camera gear outside. After graduating college, he started an outdoors/action sports focused production company and is largely responsible for our video, photo, and social media content. Jack’s favorite trip is the Cal-Salmon, because of the river’s awe-inspiring beauty and the sweet rapids. When he’s not rafting or playing with cameras, Jack can be found skiing, surfing, visiting art galleries, or eating tacos.
