Traditional sports my ass
What’s your favorite piece of gear (boats included).. ever?
My new Liquidlogic Delta V
What’s the worst place you’ve unintentionally vomited?
hahahaha into the middle of the lounge area at Adventurec in Mexico… I was bad off but it wasn\’t the best place
Are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?
Never been hunting but I eat meat. So I\’d be going out to hunt. Chasing is more fun anyway
What have you done towards being an advocate for our free flowing rivers (or what will you do)?
Donations to AW and actively engaging with the people that own land near our favorite put ins, whether it be a simple smile and a wave or going out of my way to buy a nice old man who lives at a takeout some Tylenol after he broke his foot. Its amazing the effect spending a little time with people can do for the image of our sport
Liquidlogic Kayaks, Werner Paddles, Astral, Immersion Research, Shred Ready Helmets, Smith Optics, Watershed Drybags … and a special thanks to Mom and Dad for giving me all the resources I needed along the way.
