What is BRANDstream

This video is to help those new to the sport of whitewater kayaking figure out the gear they need to get started. It is shot and edited from the standpoint of knowing little to nothing about what is required to safely and comfortably get into whitewater paddling.

There is so much stuff that you 'can' get for paddling, this tutorial aims to break it down into the NEEDS, WANTS and more LUXURY items that will all end up competing for space in your garage once you get into paddling.
