Have you ever wanted keep that sensation of complete focus? Those few seconds where absolutely nothing is more important that what you are doing... Right NOW. Hearing the world roar and tremble around you. That's my addiction, an addiction that takes me around the world and has grasped me like any drug addict would grasp their next hit, but in this world, the other addicts dont want to quit and nor do I. This is a world where everyone I meet is like minded, highly motivated by exploration and environmentally conscious. Its like being born into a family - A family based completely around "Fluid". Kayaking for me used to be all about the big air and scary drops, but that has changed over time after some life changing events on the river. To stay true to kayaking i had to find a way to keep paddling new and changing constantly. This meant loosing some of the focus on going as big as possible all the time, pushing myself to explore the many wonderous locations that are accesable to paddlers only. I got into film the very same year i began traveling with my kayak. It was a way of documenting the corners of the globe i had been lucky enough to explore with my closest friends. Things have not changed, except maybe some of the camera and editing equipment.
Kayaking since 2003.
