I'm an Australian journalist and kayaker.
In August-September I had the pleasure to paddle in California and Washington with some great people. I recorded interviews with paddlers and put some of them together for this feature for public radio here in Australia.
Riding high on American white water - Off Track - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
It focuses on life and death on the river and features Doug Ammons, Max Blackburn, Aaron Capo Rettig and Andy Round. There were many more people who shared their passions around kayaking but I was limited by time and having to stick with one theme.
Thanks to all the paddlers who gave me rides, put me up, loaned me kayaks and told their stories. I had an amazing time.
