Unsponsored Q&A Series – Gerd Serrasolses

Gerd is the older half of the famous paddling Serrasolses brothers. Hitting big whitewater, competing in world class competitions (and winning) and crafting superb GoPro edits is where Gerd spends most of his time. If a country has quality whitewater the chances are that Gerd has already been there or is planning an expedition to seek out first descents.

I’ve been following Gerd’s travels and adventures for some time and am super stoked that Gerd agreed to take part in the Unsponsored Q&A series, especially as he was in training for the Sickline event (which he won).

Unsponsored Q&A – David Fusilli

I can pretty much guarantee that you have seen one of David Fusilli’s edits online or have heard of Demshitz. If you haven’t you are definitely missing out. Take a read and check out some of David’s social media links at the bottom of this interview.

I don’t think a week goes by without me watching one of David’s edits. I love his work and I am stoked that David has agreed to take part in the Unsponsored Q&A series.

I first got into kayaking at the age of 7. My Dad taught me to roll in the Clarion University swimming pool.

What was your first kayak?

1st kayak was a home made??? I don’t think it had a name, but it was red with sparkles and had a sticker the back that said “red hot red” so I guess that was the name of the boat hahaha.

Unsponsored Q&A Series – David Turnbull

Over the last few years we have ran many Q&As with some of worlds top paddlers and manufacturers. This Q&A is a little bit different. David Turnbull isn’t a kayaker or canoeist. However David has been drawn towards whitewater like so many us and now spends a great deal of his time capturing the skill and beauty of whitewater kayaking and canoeing via the camera lens.
