|Demshitz Drop in Chile
Chances are if you follow whitewater, you have heard of Demshitz. Over the past several years, Demshitz has become the face of one of the best kayak brands in the sport: Pyranha Kayaks. Every year team Pyranha tours the United States in their signature van, competing in races, rodeos, and running the sh*t. Meet Jared Seiler; one of Demshitz founders, team Pyranha paddler, and kayaking legend. Growing up in Pennsylvania, Jared was the son of another kayaking legend, Jay Seiler. Growing up with kayaking in the family, Jared and his brother Graham were on the water before most of us learned to ride a bike. Besides pioneering many first descents and runs in Pennsylvania (and other states) such as Wapwallopen,and Raymondskill, Jared was crowned 2013 King of New York after he successfully navigated the bottom Moose in a sea kayak! Besides being a kayaking legend and owner of Demshitz, Jared is also a registered nurse, and one of the nicest most approachable people on the water. So be sure to show Pyranha and Demshitz some love (check them out here) and say hi next time you see the Pyranha van at your local run! Also be sure to check out Jared’s Sponsors: Astral, Immersion Research, Pyranha Kayaks, Watershed DryGear, and Werner Paddles and their new Demshitz Paddle!
