Name: Tyler Fox
Hails From: The Ottawa Valley, CAN or Okere Falls, NZ – Depending on which hemisphere is having spring/summer.
Favourite River: I am always the most excited while paddling a new river. It’s such a buzz paddling down a river when you don’t know what’s around the next corner.
Favourite Level Six Gear: In ideal conditions it would have to be my Play sprayskirt and my Armor-All elbow protection, while I am rocking skins down a steep creek in warm as water.
Story: Paddled and partied my way to fame on the Ottawa River, now I travel the globe full time looking for the hottest new creeks and drops. I still enjoy ripping up a big wave or cruising any and all rivers with my friends.
Plans for this summer: Extreme Race domination, with a liberal sprinkling of gnar gnar.
I am currently in New Zealand enjoying amazing rivers and even better company. Quebec will start my N. Hemisphere summer, as I continue my exploration of this un-tapped resource. Teva Mountain Games in Vail, Teva Extreme Games in Italy, Voss Extreme Week in Norway, Cali to continue training / run some goods then to Sickline World Championships in Austria. With a sweet little surfing vacation to Nicaragua to finish off my most ambitious season yet!
