Chris Wing - Founder/Program Director

I have a pretty hard time sitting in a kayak and not smiling. I can try, but I will fail more times than not, and that is pretty much the only failure I'll choose to accept. I grew up on or in the water and even my mother declares that I am a fish. I used to joke about having gills. I spent much of my childhood in the waters of Lake Erie or the Chesapeake Bay, so as it may be, it was only natural that I would become this way. I am absolutely enamored by whitewater paddling and I love to share this enthusiasm with others. I do not pigeon hole myself into just whitewater though; I am psyched on it all. My goal, however, has never changed. Simply put I desire to put you in the cockpit and empower you to become the best, self sufficient paddler you desire to be.
