What is the best country to travel to right now for kayaking?

USA!! Spring in the PNW has been epic and Idaho / Colorado will be going off very soon!

Do you have any pre-kayaking rituals?

Just get mentally prepared for whatever I’m doing whether it is going out and playboating, running a tough river, or just going out for a chill paddle.

One strange thing that I am really good at…


What is your favorite part of the North Fork Payette?

WARM BIG WATER!! Also love how much class V whitewater you get in 18 miles.

Never have I ever…

Swam anywhere other than Mexico (twice).

What is one word or phrase you want associated with your name?

IDAHO or just a very balanced paddler.
