Goals: Travel more! I was bitten by the travel bug on a recent trip to Mexico and I’m fired up to pursue paddling in hot spots around the world. Anyone trying to rally?
What I love about kayaking: Kayaking is simply the best way to engage with yourself, the natural world, and the awesome community that surrounds this lifestyle. There are few sports which force you to push yourself mentally and physically as hard as you do when you’re kayaking.
