“Kayaking gives me a freedom which I don’t find in any other aspect of life, it has enabled me to see the world differently and meet many amazing people from all over the world.”

Seth Ashworth, originally from London England has been chasing Whitewater all over the world.

At age 11, Seth started out kayaking in a slalom boat on some of London’s smaller whitewater. He was instantly hooked and wanted to share the awesome feeling of freedom he had with others. Over time he progressed his own skills from paddling around on a small lake to freestyle paddling and slalom racing. With that background the progression to creek boating was fairly quick. He traveled all over the UK to paddle slalom races, freestyle events and any steep creeks that were running. Years later he can now be spotted in various locations all over the world.

Seven years ago Seth moved his home base location to Ottawa, Canada to pursue his dream of paddling bigger whitewater on a more regular basis, and through his time there he has had opportunities to chase whitewater all over the world. Big wave paddling in Canada and Africa, creeking expeditions in South America, Europe and New Zealand, first descents in Mexico. On top of all that you will often see Seth in events like UNLEASHED and UNLEASHEDxUGANDA pushing hard amongst some of the sports top athletes.
