Wrestling(lots of hip control lends itself nicely to kayaking) & football
Skiing is my winter equivalent
Eagle scout--where I met my true love of the river.(I actually had a girl break up with me because my kayak got more attention than her)

moving my ass

Everytime someone told me to get my fat ass moving I said it's going to take me two or three trips.

I always hated sports at school, and still do even when I think of other people's kids doing them. That's one reason why I got involved with the river community. Grizzly old boatmen were much more interesting and accepting than my "peers" ever were... And still are!
Please take a look at my Photo Web Gallery.
I also have here some gear reviews (that I might update soon).

Logan my pops forced me and the bro to take kayak lessons from the man denny lee himself - when I was 12 and little bro was 10 . No kids/parents other than sotlquist were paddlin around the upper ark then..

As far as organized sports - I spent most of my weekends from 16-18 yrs down in the various hoods of denver gettin myself known in the small rec center/outdoor hoops scene. That rolled into a 4 year full ride hoops scholarship in college, 3 year starter, with over 2000 career points, and I even hung 40 points on CU one night.. Hoops ended for me with invites to the CBA/Europe leagues but opted out and spent all the money I had saved up on a snowmachine. Then headed out to the BC that winter and never looked back.

I always found it funny that all my hoops friends/coaches hated the fact that I snowboarded/kayaked all the time and all my snowboard/kayak friends could not believe that I played hoops just about every day.. Yea what a funny clicky world we live in!

Grew up playing b'ball in an eastern city. Nek, I'd have held you to 39. Wrestled at a high level in high school. I've met lots of former wrestlers on the rio. Played a lot of b'ball and volleyball as a young man. Blew my knee out and kept on playing on my "trick knee". This was before good surgery options. Finally had it reconstructed but its an unstable mess. Discovered paddling with my kid at 46. When yer legs are gone paddling takes on an even higher level of awesomeness.
