My First Stakeout (Entry #13 Short Film Awards 2023)
« This year an opportunity suddenly came up for me to go to Stakeout, the ultimate freestyle kayaking expedition in Quebec. I am not an amazing freestyle kayaker and a far cry from being amongst the best, so I really didn’t know what to expect for me. What I found though, was a warm welcome from a great group of friends, an inner peace from camping deep in the Canadian wilderness, and some time to work on some parts of myself and parts of my paddling that I’ve neglected over the years. As I get back to preparing to instruct for my signature Big Water Confidence Week on the Ottawa, I’m so excited to share what I’ve been up to and how I’ve been growing again as a kayaker myself.
Filming on this one was done by me, Alex Neal, Heidi Walsh, Nick Beavis, Luke Pomeroy, and more…. Thanks for sharing your footage guys! »
