Canoeing and Kayaking
:: Going Vertical
Running wild in the mountains of eastern Washington as a child, world-class extreme kayaker and entrepreneur Tao Berman continues to run wild through the record books and life. A world-record waterfall-drop holder since his 98.4-foot kayak flight off of Upper Johnston Falls in Banff National Forest, Berman is a powerhouse, a living riveting story of pushing envelopes to the unthinkable edge.
As analytical as he is physically powerful, Berman not only pushes the limits of possibility but redefines them, leaving behind in his wake a tidal wave of inspiration and can-do attitude. His life story of adventure prowess, domination of an extreme sport, and personal audacity to go where others fear to tread is as gripping as it is inspiring. Whether you need a kick in the pants or not, follow Berman's incredible tale as he redefines human limitations with guts, training, persona, and maybe even sometimes a little luck.
