The mountains are calling and I must go, and I will work on while I can, studying incessantly.

Brooke Hess

Brooke Hess was on skis before she could walk, in a climbing harness before she could read, and in a whitewater kayak before she could drive. She graduated with a B.S. in Geoscience from University of Montana and now lives in her truck, seeking out the biggest and best river waves in the world. She spends the majority of the year traveling and competing as a member of the U.S. Freestyle Kayak Team. She has paddled all over the world, including rivers in Europe, Africa, New Zealand, South America, and all over the U.S. and Canada. Her current kayaking goals are focused on big wave freestyle, which makes the massive water of the Mistassibi in Central Quebec her favorite river.
