China's Growing Kayaking Community

Hey everyone,

This summer Gabriel Cote-Valiquette, Tom McLay and myself traveled throughout China exploring new rivers and teaching river rescue and technique at many different river festivals throughout the country. Gabe and I shot a mini documentary about this enthused group of paddlers. Pretty interesting, hope y'all enjoy!

Anyone know how to imbed?

Great video. Would love to see more. I visited China 6 or 7 years ago and remember, from what I heard, they had a totally nascent outdoor "industry". Interesting thoughts about the unique population of paddlers in China and how it has the potential to influence environmental decisions. As seemingly worthless and narcissistic as outdoor pursuits can be, they do hold the ability to make us recognize, appreciate, and understand nature, and as a consequence understand the value of protecting it.
