Eric is 6′ 4" tall, fairly quiet, but loves to hit the ground running
when it comes to expedition boating. I only knew Eric from the Twitch
series and No Big Names until this trip, so I didn’t know what to expect.
He is a team player, super motivated and always knows what to do next. His
experience along side of Ben Stookesberry shows as the two of them (formerly
partners in No Big Names) rarely need words to implement a rapidly changing
plan that includes tough portages, rapids, filming, or safety. I developed
a lot of respect for Eric in the short two weeks I spent with him on the
Ben Stookesberry Alsececa expedition in Mexico (Hotel Charley: River of
Doubt film).

Look for Eric at Jackson Hole in the winter skiing with his extreme
pro-skier fiancé, Jess, and then don’t expect to see him on the water near
you, as he does a lot of his boating in places no kayaker has been before,
along side of Ben.

Welcome to the team Eric!

Here is what Eric says about Eric (written in third party)

After graduating from Western State College in 2001, Eric has traveled the
world in search of whitewater first descents, while trying to capture that
magical shot on video or stills. Eric has produced and worked as the
principle videographer for four films and has paddled in 8 kayak movies.
Eric lives in Ashland, OR in the summertime where he raft guides on the
Upper Klamath, Cal Salmon, and the Rogue. Ashland puts Eric 10 miles from
the California border where the rivers and granite bedrock are endless. You
can find Eric kayaking in the Sierra’s in the spring and in the winter or
fall traveling to some remote location to kayak and shoot video or stills.
Eric resides in Jackson, WY in the winter where he has discovered the
endless skiing opportunities the backcountry of the Tetons provide.

Eric says:

I love kayaking with a camera between my legs. Wow, that kind of sounds
phallic doesn’t it. But seriously, as co-founder of the No Big Names
series, I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved. Being able to share
the places we have gone with other people is incredible. We have been
finalists in the Banff National film festival multiple times. Increasing
awareness of rivers and locations have always been the goals of our film
company, while safely running the hardest whitewater. Clear H2O Films
meshes perfectly with Jackson Kayaks.

I am excited about the opportunity to paddle Jackson Kayaks. EJ’s vision on
kayaking and his company should help make the world a better place. His
safety features for the Rocker series are setting a new precedence for creek
boats. Jackson Kayaks stewardship for the rivers and environmental ethics
are creating new standards in the industry. Kayaking is all about having
fun and with Jackson Kayaks technology; paddling is easier, a bit safer,
more comfortable (I’m 6’4”), and this equates to more fun.

See you on the river or the slopes,

Eric Seymour
