A Little Paddle: To Alaska

The Team

Longtime Friends


First Time Paddling Partners

We met on the first day of highschool in September, 2008 and became immediate friends! We quickly became known for getting together and creating outlandish projects. In the years since, we have become consistent adventure pals always working towards our next project. We have developed a strong work ethic and are constantly challenging each other to find creative solutions to problems. All of our projects have been based on a shared

set of core values which we hold close and embody in our personal and professional lives.

The Seed is Planted

While paddling around North end of Vancouver Island, Nathan wonders what it would be like to just keep paddling 'up' the coast... Just like that, the seed of adventure is planted!

2020 - Winter
