Over the last two weeks I have had the privilege of boating with Clay Wright at Pucon kayak Hostel. Clay has the Unique skill of speaking his mind. He doesn’t try to sugar coat it. When you are doing something wrong, he will be the first to tell you. This sounds harsh, but it is often the best way to improve. For example: I was having a hard time looking up stream when playboating. Clay called me out and gave me some great tips to help fix the problem.
It’s said that when you surround your self with people that are better then you, naturally you will become better yourself. Play boating with Clay and Stephen Wright gives you something to strive for. You see what years of practice and dedication can get you. On and off the water ,Clay strives to push everyone to their full potential. Whether it’s getting a blog up or getting the trailer loaded to get on the river, he’s there. He’s that little voice in the back of your head telling you to work just a little harder to finish the job right.
I see Clay a few times every year and every time he gives me great advice on paddling and life. When you are wondering about any thing having to do with kayaking going back to the dawn of time, Clay is the man to ask. He happens to know just about everything about anything in the kayaking world. Ask him his opinion on a boat or a product and he’ll give it to you. Clay has always been a great role-model and friend. It was awesome to get to spend some time with him in Chile, and I wish him all the best in his travels.
