Just when you think you’ve seen everything… A few weeks ago, my buddy and colleague invited me out kayaking. In January. After realizing he wasn’t joking, I respectfully declined going on the water, but said I’d love to watch him from the shore.
Editor’s note: I will eventually join Drew on the water, but he’d like me to get down the basics before joining him in the frigid conditions.
So without further ado, here’s a series of shots I captured on a snowy February morning with Drew Stephens and his kayaking crew.
The Coeur d’Alene resident picked up freestyle kayaking two years ago, and he’s been hooked ever since.
For those looking to connect with the local freestyle kayaking community, you can reach out to “Spokane Whitewater” and “North Idaho Whitewater Boating” on Facebook. These groups share river information, kayaking meet-ups and exchange paddling stories.

Spring kayaking in Minnesota is almost like winter kayaking… I think these guys are crazy passionate to be kayaking in January. My hat is off to them and to you for capturing their adventures that day.
