Women's whitewater video project

Video Ideas


Paddle in Pink is asking for your ideas. We are looking to do a collaborative video project and we want your ideas. We have some ideas of our own but we want to hear from you. Basically, we want to create a stunning piece that will help get coverage on women in this sport. This could be one killer video, or many depending on the ideas that pour in. So, what story do you want us to produce (please post your ideas in the comments or on facebook)?


I started kayaking in Wisconsin of all places, because this is where I am from. I then moved to San Diego and took on kayak surfing along with heading to the Kern River when water was available. I then made the move to Asheville, NC and have been hooked on this sport since my Wisconsin days. With whatever it is that you do, do it because you love it, not because society tells you should or for other outside factors. Don't simply exist, live!

One thought to “Video Ideas”

  1. When I think of kayaking, as a woman, it’s amazing how much it has brought to my life in terms of confidence. I’ve learned to face fear and to lean in when I wanted to run away. I’ve learned to trust my gut, and then challenge myself to get past it. I’ve had incredible women mentors along the way – some who were in my life just the length of a river, others who have been at my side for a decade – but in all cases they showed me what they saw in me before I could see it myself. I would love to see a video focusing on how whitewater can really help women build self-confidence, something that ends up having an impact on their whole lives, not just kayaking. Not sure how you’d make a video that would show that… but it would be cool!
