Rush Sturges

If you don’t know the name, you must not be a kayaker. Rush has paddled more whitewater around the world and produced more whitewater content in the past 20 years than anyone else in the game. We’ve all watched Rush transition from a wild young freestyle world champion making Young Gun Productions films, to a full blown legend of our sport making the highest quality whitewater documentaries. Living in White Salmon Washington Rush is part of the Gorge crew paddling almost 200 days in a calendar year. Inspiration and true love for the sport can be felt in watching Rush’s films and while spending time on the river with him. We are proud that Rush has decided to join Team Waka while continuing to push his whitewater career to new places!
