Filmmakers: Tucker Gragg and Austin Gardner
Runtime: 26 mins
Synopsis: White water kayakers are adventurers, extreme sports enthusiasts, and adrenaline junkies who push themselves through stretch after stretch of white water for the love of the challenge and to gaze fondly into the heart of nature. For one man that river exists only in wind gusts, the loud torrent that fills the air, the taste of clay in his mouth and the splash of cool water on his face.
