Fred NorquistKayaking is the most fun thing I have ever done. It takes me to some of the coolest places in the world and allows me to be an adventurer, to explore the world by the way of free flowing water. I love this sport more than I could ever explain. I grew up in Carbondale, CO and stated paddling at age 15. I instantly fell in love and couldn’t think about anything esle. I spent one semester at World Class Kayak Academy, and the rest 3.5 years at Colorado Rocky Mountain School where I was taught to kayak by Peter Benedict, Sam Damon and Tom Mckee. After graduation I met up with Evan Garcia and off we went to Chile where i met the infamous demshitz. Those 2 months in Chile made me convinced that yes kayaking is indeed the best thing in the world. I then moved to Bellingham, WA where I attend Film school. I like to kayak, and make hella-flush kayak videos that portray the experience of being on the river because its the best feeling in the world.

I am now 21 years old and kayaking is my life. My most prized possessions are my kayaks, my camera, my moustache, and my car.. “gnacar”. I also like long walks on the beach, Subaru’s with over 300 hp, skiing, powder days, waterfalls, PBR’s, PBJ’s, cliff jumping, video filming and editing, underwater basket weaving, drifting, slacklining, and mostly importantly… being a gypsy. Ladies-You are in luck… I’m single!
