Episode #15 Evan Moore - Extreme Kayaker / Business Owner / World Traveler
     The 26-year-old Californian began kayaking at age 6, ran his first class V rapid at age nine, and was a known name in the California kayaking scene by the time he hit high school. Being the son of Tom Moore – owner of Sierra South Paddle Sports in Kernville, California, Evan grew up on the banks of the Kern River and was part of the whitewater scene practically from birth.     Growing up, kayaking wasn’t his only passion. Evan was a very accomplished high school football Quarterback which led him to Sacramento to play football at one of the top Junior Colleges in the country. Although he was extremely dedicated to football, something was missing in his life - whitewater kayaking. After a long hard decision, Evan walked away from football to pursue kayaking and has not looked back since. He’s been to eight different countries in the last year chasing the biggest and hardest whitewater the planet has to offer.    “I’ve set both local and global goals for myself as a kayaker. I want to become the first person to run every inch of whitewater on the Kern River, and I want to find new whitewater in all corners of the Earth. Doing that requires great gear like Kokatat makes. It’s an honor to be on Team Kokatat and representing the company.”     Evan’s philosophy in life is to ‘pursue what your heart tells you to do, and not let outside influences stop you from achieving your dreams’.
