It seems more people are figuring out that traditional designs are more enduring than the modern trend of making everything electronic and disposable. We’ve been partnering with Filson to bring traditional kayaks to outdoorspeople that care about the process of making things. We spent a week in the San Juan Islands with Filson, building kayaks and paddling around the waters which were brimming with spring salmon. Here’s the result of that week: a visual feast of going back to the basics.
I also wrote an article for Filson Life, talking in-depth about my life as a traditional kayak-builder and what it means to pass on our stories.
