For whitewater dory lovers, there’s no better place than Idaho. The state’s miles of wild, free-flowing rivers are home to the country’s deepest gorges and some of the best big water rapids. In 1972, renowned conservationist and Grand Canyon Dories founder Martin Litton asked Curt Chang if he’d like to take some boats and a crew to Hells Canyon. After an initial scouting trip, Curt started up the Idaho operation. Since then, Curt has fostered a community of guides who care deeply about rivers, running good trips and the legacy of dories.

Director Biography - Logan Bockrath
A career in filmmaking was never planned. At the age most kids are attempting to set a course for their life, I was living in Ecuador eating chicken foot soup, dating an older Colombian girl, and kayaking every day. Suffice it to say, I had zero plans for the future except the constant reality that I was dangerously close to running out of money before I could fly back.
Fast forward through a decade of the classic dirtbag kayaker curriculum and I was looking to put down permanent roots in West Virginia. I hustled my way into a couple different marketing/filmmaking jobs before I started Thelonious Step, a small production company that (fortunately) focuses on all the stuff I like.
