1. RYAN SALM HOME­TOWN: TA­HOE CITY, CAL­I­FOR­NIA OC­CU­PA­TION: PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

“Ex­tra zinc and a very light, cot­ton but­ton-up long-sleeved shirt for sun pro­tec­tion. Be­ing a fair-skinned gentle­man, I don’t want to get fried.”

2. TRACY GUENARD HOME­TOWN: OTTAWA, ON­TARIO, CANADA OC­CU­PA­TION: WRITER AND JEW­ELRY MAKER

“I have lots of fun pad­dling with my dog so I use a dog­gie PFD with a handle. It makes it su­per easy to get her on and off the board.”

3. KEITH ZARING HOME­TOWN: CEN­TEN­NIAL, COLORADO OC­CU­PA­TION: OWNER, AKZ PAD­DLE COM­PANY

“Waist-mounted PFD. It’s pas­sive and com­fort­able to pad­dle with. I like it for the free­dom.”

4. MATT LEECH HOME­TOWN: DOYLESTOWN, PENN­SYL­VA­NIA OC­CU­PA­TION: SALES MAN­AGER

“The Astral Sea Wolf PFD is not too cum­ber­some and al­lows me to store lots of gear. It also has the quick-re­lease belt for run­ning whitewater.”

5. SCOTTY STOUGHTON HOME­TOWN: DEN­VER, COLORADO OC­CU­PA­TION: CO-FOUNDER SUP COLORADO, MU­SI­CIAN, FES­TI­VAL OR­GA­NIZER

“A river-res­cue knife. I feel naked with­out it be­cause I use it for any­thing that comes up un­ex­pect­edly. Oth­er­wise I’m a min­i­mal­ist; I take noth­ing but the ab­so­lute essen­tials.”

6. ZACH MAHONE HOME­TOWN: MINTURN, COLORADO OC­CU­PA­TION: PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

“A 12-volt pump for in­flat­a­bles is a game-changer. It speeds up the whole process of get­ting on the river and you can give it to other peo­ple to help them out.”
