MULTIPICITY 2016: Benny Marr—The Wild Ways of a Whitewater Wizard

Born in Ontario, professional kayaker Benny Marr currently doesn’t have a home. And that’s fine by him. Traveling the world, couch surfing, or crashing in the back of his truck, Marr would rather be at the right spot at the right time than being tied down by any traditional financial shackles, like that nasty mortgage.

Marr is one of, if not, the top kayakers in the world.  From insane big wave freestyle, to big water first descents (including the legendary, previously untested Site Zed and the mighty Congo) Benny is the best at what he does, but you would never know it meeting him off the river. He’s kayaked the famed 3-week expedition through Canada’s Nachvak River, and has recently tackled an incredibly technical expedition through Papua New Guinea.

 

About his presentation
Benny plans to introduce kayaking and highlight a few far away destinations, from Africa, to China and Papua New Guinea. As well as a glimpse into Quebec and Ontario, before moving into the bulk of the presentation, the incredible whitewater options in the South Coast, honing in on Squamish and Whistler.
