Dory Land

About Dory Land

Director: Logan Bockrath
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 river 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.
