|What is the best country to travel to right now for kayaking?
New Zealand has always been great. Some of the best rivers I have ever run are in New Zealand and that was almost 20 years ago, when I was 13. But I am going to be living and traveling in a 5th wheel, so I will be exploring all the great whitewater in the USA.
|Do you have any pre-kayaking rituals?
Actually… no. Unless you count dropping the kids off at the pool as a ritual?
|One strange thing that I am really good at…
C-1ing, I know it is strange, but I like it!
|Why should the Trick Force (top ten last year) pick you to race Jake’s?
Because I am a C1er that has put down competitive times compared to some of the top kayakers in races such as the Green and Homestake. I would like to show you just how fast a C1 can go.
|What is your favorite part of the North Fork Payette?
Probably just the excitement I feel thinking about running some huge water, and I get to experience it for the first time ever. The first time is always the best.
|Never have I ever…
Worn a drysuit.
|What is one word or phrase you want associated with your name?
Half the Paddle, Twice the Man
