Evan Moore

Professional Extreme Kayaker

Born and raised on the Kern River; Evan doesn’t know life without rivers and kayaking. At 5 years-old, he was already a talented boater. Now at 22 years-old, he is running rivers only crazy people would dream of. He recently completed the Royal Flush, which has only been done by a handful of risk takers. What is his boat of choice? The Jackson Nirvana medium, a great kayak for running huge holes, winning races, and surviving 100 ft. waterfalls. Tested and proven to be a reliable boat by some of the top kayakers in the world. Want to be like Evan? Check out the Nirvana for yourself!
