For a while now I've needed a new helmet - one to use for teaching on the river or in rough water rescue practice on the ocean. Something for those situations where my full face helmet is just overkill. I've been use a plastic Shred Ready that has worked well but it's reaching the end of its useful life. I noticed that Shred Ready is now doing custom art on their helmets - you design it and they slap it on. So I ordered a glass helmet with my very own logo. Yes, it's flashy and self aggrandizing. But I'm worth it, right?

Most of my adult life has been spent teaching and managing one thing or another. A decade ago I discovered kayaking and after spending a few years enjoying the sport I decided to try to make it my career. I have taught kayaking, guided trips, managed kayak schools and now I am documenting the sport for fun and profit (mostly fun).
