Jackson Kayak Signs Whitewater Legend Tyler Bradt to Team JK
Jackson Kayak announces today the signing of Tyler Bradt to Team Jackson Kayak. Tyler is known for his prowess on the waterways of the world and currently holds the world waterfall record at 189 feet and has many first descents under his belt including the mighty Inga Rapids on the Congo River. Tyler will be taking Jackson Kayak with him on his world tour, The Wizard’s Eye Expedition, and will be paddling some of the most spectacular waterways on the globe.
“My drive is to live life from one adventure to the next,” states Bradt, “exploring, learning, gaining perspective, skills, discipline and generally just living this life to ultimate extent I am able”. Tyler is ¾ of the way through his global exploratory trip as it approaches the Americas this spring and summer. Tyler stunned the world dropping off Palouse Falls in Oregon etching his name in the history books with a 189 foot descent shattering records. Tyler will not only be running wild rivers in his upcoming expeditions for Jackson Kayak but also be touring into unique natural environments in some of Jackson’s exploration fleet.
“Some people do things that are beyond the imagination of most people”, notes Eric Jackson, President of Jackson Kayak. “ Others do things beyond those people’s imagination. Tyler is one of those people. His drive to do what hasn’t been done before is that of a modern day Magellan. We are fired up to welcome him to the team”.
