Doug Van Doren Featured in Canoe Kayak Magazine

West Michigan's own Doug Van Doren was featured in Canoe & Kayak Magazine as one of fourteen innovators of the sport. Conor Mihell formerly of Naturally Superior Adventures and a frequent writer and columnist for Canoe and Kayak wrote the article. I recommend picking up this issue for your scrap book.
It's great to see recognition for Doug's efforts within the sport. In the early introduction of Greenland traditional style paddling in the United States, Doug was one of three influential researchers and paddlers, John Heath and Greg Stamer being the other two.
...
Doug Van Doren along with Greg Stamer were two of the early paddling pioneers in the 80s and 90s.
...
Before the internet was ubiquitous, before there was a Dubside video, or This is the Sea I-IV, there was Doug, John, and Greg, (among many others).
...
To develop his technique Doug was looking at old movie footage of Greenlandic paddlers, John Heath's research and some modern techniques to incorporate and mold into a modern Greenland Style technique that is both elegant and practical.
...
Doug also has the benefit of being a great coach, and was invited to work within the BCU system to endorse traditional style paddling in the early 90s. Doug holds a BCU Coach 3 Star Certification and also went to Wales to attend a BCU 5 Star Training. This experience has made Doug more of a leader in Sea Kayaking than in Greenland Rolling which has become wildly popular over the last few years. Though anyone who has seen Doug's rolling demo at symposiums would never argue with his rolling ability.
There are many, many competent Greenland style rollers now who travel every year to Greenland to compete in the Greenlandic games that are all passionately involved in pursuing traditional style skills due to early pioneers like John Heath, Greg Stamer and Doug Van Doren.
I asked Doug Van Doren about ...

I asked Doug Van Doren about leadership on the water. His take is that the strongest paddler will often naturally end up leading the other paddlers through an emergency, whether or not this person is designated as the leader or not.
...
Doug Van Doren and I arrived in Wawa Ontario midday on Friday. We stepped out of the car to view Rock Island Lodge's panoramic view of both the Michipicoten River mouth and Lake Superior. The dappled gray rocks, with pock marks of orange lichen and moss stripe the pillowed rock formations the lodge sits upon. Those rocks serve as a small, but seemingly functional barrier to the world's largest and often most tempestuous body of freshwater in the world.
Doug was invited as a guest instructor. Earlier this year I inquired with Conor the organizer of the event about tagging along with Doug. Conor graciously agreed and I made arrangements to accompany Doug to Wawa for the Symposium.
...
Early on Friday Doug taught a forward stroke clinic to the Naturally Superior staff. I was surprised and enthused by the group's high skill level.
...
They all improved their forward stroke demonstrably within the time Doug spent with them. I also tried to absorb a lot of the material for the next day. Having been in and helped teach the class I marveled at the working blueprint of the class and how he taught it.
...
Doug and I continued out to paddle into the wind and then back for an hour or two.
...
The Canadians kept passing random objects to Doug for him to roll with, such as: a rusty axe, a peg leg, (also known as the ghetto leg) a bicycle seat, and a drain pipe. All of which he managed to complete some variety of roll. The bicycle seat was my favorite as he was able to complete a forward recovery hand roll with it.
...
When it finally came to me, both Bonnie and Doug were hot on my heels, and I paddled like hell to keep the lead. I could hear Bonnie behind me. But when I rounded the lighthouse, I could tell she was not that close.
...
I crossed the finish line well ahead of Doug and Bonnie. I sat panting for at least a minute and then Bonnie, followed closely by Doug crossed the finish line. Doug made up a lot of ground on the race, but I am still left wondering who would've come out on top if we'd left at the same time!

Doug Van Doren started off the fun by filling Jeff Allen's Explorer with water before the race even started.
