For 20 years, Sam Drevo has been competing in kayaking at the highest level, making first descents, and teaching others to paddle. The Oregon resident started eNRG Kayaking to promote the sport of kayaking and to protect the health of our rivers. His company mobilized 1500 volunteers to clean over 100 miles of Oregon’s Clackamas River. More than 3000 people have learned to paddle thanks to eNRG Kayaking, which also offers guided trips to exotic destinations like Africa, Costa Rica, and Tibet. Drevo’s paddling adventures have taken him all around the world, but he is always glad to come back home and dip his paddle into the swirling waters of the Clackamas, the river he’s done so much to protect.
