We are lifelong learners and dedicated educators studying and sharing the ancient technologies of paddle craft.

We create play-based and place-based learning experiences for parents to share with their children at a pivotal time in our species’ history.

We believe our species is quickly entering a post-recreational era, one in which the skills of small paddle craft, along with other basic wilderness skills, are less luxurious and more necessary.

We are dedicated to supporting individual mindfulness, kinesthetic awareness, emergency preparedness, and environmental perception within the context of this historic moment.
