When Steve approached me with the idea that he wanted to do his first ever whitewater kayaking instructional film, funded by Kickstarter, I was excited. The two things that excited me most where:
1. Steve only makes epic films.
2. Nobody has ever done a kayaking related KickStarter project, so if this works, it could open a whole new way for kayakers to fund projects that other kayakers were interested in.
The key to a Kickstarter project is that the people funding it (“buying into it”) and getting something in return. In this case there are a variety of options for everyone’s budget. Yes, there are some funny options, like Date Night, with three single kayakers (Dane, Pat, and Ben). A good easy one for those want instruction can get the “Paddle with a Pro” clinic with one of us- $500/day.
Check out the options here!

I am excited to work with Steve, Pat, Ben, and Dane on this instructional video! River Running and more will be covered!
