The “Whitewater Troubleshooter” looks to fill a void in kayak instructional filming that typically takes a “how-to” approach to instruction and instead replaces it with a “how come.” Many beginner paddlers learn the basics but still truly lack the understanding as to why their paddling remains complicated and lacks fluidity that many advanced paddlers possess.
The “Whitewater Troubleshooter” was directed and shot by Sam Fulbright of Pilot Collective Media and Chris Wing and Lydia Cardinal of H2o Dreams LLC. This project has been a long time goal of professional kayaker, instructor, and Wave Sport athlete Chris Wing in hopes to spur a reverence for creative thought towards kayak instruction. Some of these ideas are not your normal approach to kayak instruction but have had applied success.
