Don has been paddling his TRAK since the summer of 2015. He chose this kayak because of its unique ability to operate in a variety of environments and to travel with. Don says: "the diversity of experiences is amazing!" He is a guide and instructor with Capilano University’s School of Outdoor Recreation and is experienced with a wide range of kayak types. Being unleashed with a TRAK allows him the opportunity to explore and adventure: this summer, inspired by Farley Mowat, Don took his TRAK to Nunavut and paddled the Coppermine River. Don’s most memorable experience: “boofing" a boulder sieve on the Coppermine River. He does not recommend this in a folding boat but the TRAK came out surprisingly well.
