WHAT MADE YOU START KAYAKING? Canoeing was boring.
WHO INSPIRED YOU THE MOST? YGP! Older paddling movies that I watched over and over inspired me to paddle hard, they set the bar and I wanted to be able to paddle all the big drops and waves I was watching the pros on… My first video was Fallin Down, those guys are epic! I also watched play daze over and over, I still have my copy, signed by Kevin Varette.
FAVORITE LOCATION? Flooded Quebec Rivers, Steep California Creeks.
