My name is Adam Edwards. I learned to kayak while attending college in Portland Oregon through Portland State University's Outdoor Program. I love the pacific northwest region for kayaking and have spent the last 12 years paddling and exploring the different zones from Oregon to Alaska. My love of kayaking and paddlesports is often shared through the written word and photography via print and web published articles, short films, public speaking and community events. I enjoy trying to make paddling accessible and relatable to as many walks of life as possible. Exploratory kayaking and steep creeking are my favorite. You'll often find me wandering around the hills of Oregon and Washington with close friends looking for obscure or seldom run creeks. I also enjoy racing, mostly as a barometer for personal skill and endurance and also enjoy seeing and spending time with the larger community at events.
