What new place do you want to paddle in this year?

I want to get further up north into Canadian waters.

What is your favorite place to paddle here in the NW?

I hit the caves and stacks of Cape Flattery, Point of Arches, Giants Graveyard, and Tatoosh Island every chance I get. Here's a video from this summer to get more folks psyched to get out there!

What is your sea kayaking experience level (beginner, intermediate, expert)?

I cannot ever imagine calling myself an "expert" at anything involving the ocean. It will always humble you and make you feel like a fool for testing it. However, I'm comfortable (actually love) paddling in the surf, caves, and rock gardens of the outer coast; and I've done many multi-day solo trips in some challenging areas.

Where are some of the places you have been kayaking?

Personally, I've done many week-long solo paddles on Kauai's NaPali Coast, the Olympic Coast, the San Juans, and the Apostle Islands. I've also professionally led week-long group trips in the San Juans.


I started out as a whitewater kayaker but quickly fell in love with paddling the rocks, caves, arches and surf of the Washington Coast and Kauai. I'm looking forward to meeting people for fun multi day trips.
