They’re Coming to Colorado… It’s an Epic Year!
Directions to Colorado Kayak Supply
This is Colorado kayaking at it’s finest. Ever since I arrived to Buena Vista four days ago kayaker’s have been excited about snowpack. If you’re from out of state and love paddling then get to Colorado this summer. As the locals are saying, “It’s gonna be a good year.”
I was working in the CKS Warehouse when the text came. My boss, Bobby Kuepper, had just told me I needed to photo all used boats for the website.
9:27 am Text from Stephen Wright: “Glenwood at 18000 u n?”
At that moment my kayak induced A.D.D. took control. I was excited to surf and asked Bobby if I could shoot the world’s top kayakers on Colorado’s best wave at optimum level. CKS owner Chad Gorby confirmed a yes and I officially realized CKS was a kickass place to work.
Especially, motivated to get the shop kayak photos done, interview and photo Tiff Simpson for a “G’Bye Tiff” piece, I hustled for work closure and was on the Aspen pass by noon.
