Long time friends Dan Gavere & Chris Emerick had been paddling kayaks for the last 20 yrs, competing around the country and making films. They both had been paddling kayaks for the last 20 yrs, competing around the country and making films. By chance they both landed in the Columbia Gorge and quickly took up the sport of Stand up paddling. The area is a mecca for stand up paddling offering a wide variety of opportunities to paddle such as surfing waves on the coast, riding wind swell on the columbia or paddling whitewater and running waterfalls all on an SUP board. The two decided that there was opportunity to film instructional videos that would teach beginners proper paddling technique but also introducing them to the diversity of the sport including racing, fitness paddling, wave surfing and whitewater paddling. The Ultimate Guide to Stand Up Paddling DVD was the result and has become very popular tool for getting people into the sport. The two are planning future productions that will focus more on each discipline of the sport as well as making adventure travel films.
