Available in a stunning design that emanates from the hearts and minds of Kokatat’s premier athletes.

A cactus from Mexican native Rafa Ortiz, a salmon from Gerd Serrasolses representing his long distance travels but always returning home, a raven from Oregon’s Chris Korbulic representing his upbringing in the Pacific Northwest, a snowflake from Nouria Newman representing skiing in the French Alps as a child which lead to her passion for adventure in the mountains and rivers, a kayaker hiking with his boat represents Ben Stookesberry’s lust for adventure that often takes him long distances into remote rivers, Dane Jackson has spent his entire life chasing rainstorms, Emily Jackson chose a van by the river to represent growing up on the road traveling to kayak with her family, the Southern Cross represents home for New Zealand’s Jordy Seale, Jules Domine spends most of his time in Columbia discovering new rivers while studying the native culture and habitat and chose the Chiribiquete pictograms which is where he is working on his latest project, and Evan Moore chose the Tehipite valley, which is part of the middle Kings and close to where he grew up on the Kern river, to represent his upbringing as a kayaker. Marcus Cline is a Salt Lake-based artist known for blending his outdoor passions with his art. His work appears in a multitude of mediums and he has a long history as a whitewater guide and avid whitewater kayaker.
