THE DUBCAST WITH DUBSIDE: Special Guest Brian Schulz (Part 1)

IN THIS EPISODE:

Sea Kayak designer/builder and founder of Cape Falcon Kayak, Brian Schulz, talks about the making of the viral video, “Building the West Greenland kayak, Step by Step”, how he got started building skin-on-frame kayaks and into Greenland Style kayaking after meeting the world’s preeminent kayak historian, Harvey Golden, taking apart the myth that Greenland kayaks reached a level of perfection after thousands of years of kayak evolution, how he would never have been a skin-boat builder if it wasn’t for Corey Freedman’s mysterious "GOOP", how Greenland Style paddling helped him recover from a severe shoulder injury, his advice for people who want to learn how to roll, and the 5 core evolutionarily hard-wired fears that must be overcome to learn how to roll.
