Latest Videos

The SEND crew released their latest video aptly named, Born to be Wild. It serves as a reminder to live life to the fullest. Before watching this video we want to warn you that there are some graphic shots in the video of injuries sustained while paddling.

The video starts with a voiceover talking about how humans were born to travel and the changing role of the kayak over the years. “Nowadays, the kayak’s role has changed, but it is still used out of need—as a tool to help satisfy our inner curiosity and desire to explore,” says Adrian Mattern.

“In a time where technology has allowed man to stand on the moon, it is humbling to reach places on this planet that few humans have ever been,” adds Bren Orton.

The video talks about the challenges in the sport and includes some graphic clips from Bren Orton’s accident on Alexandra Falls in the Northwest Territories. Bren goes on to say, “There is no good without bad. All we can do is be thankful the good times outnumber the bad, and be grateful for what they truly are. A reminder to live life to the fullest.”

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preseved body

This is something that everyone can relate to, no matter what you are doing in life. This video was released on December 31, 2019, ending the year with a true bang. We are excited to see what 2020 will bring for the SEND crew.

The video ends with this great Hunter S. Thompson quote: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow! What a ride!'”
