  Steven Fritz

Steven started paddling in the early 80s using a 17-foot aluminum canoe. He has paddled rivers and camped, mostly in northern Wisconsin, with one, week-long trip to the Boundary Waters. He started kayaking in 2015. His passion is exploring the side channels off rivers in his kayak, especially those in more remote areas, taking pictures of the scenery and wildlife that rarely see humans.
