Finding Tyler Bradt in the pages of every paddlesports mag in the industry has been easy. Now you can find him gracing the pages of Sports Illustrated too.
In April, Bradt destoyed his own world record-and the unofficial marks of Paul Gamache and Brazil’s Pedro Oliva-when he stuck 186-foot Palouse Falls in Washington. NBC’s Today Show welcomed Oliva and paddling partner Ben Stookesberry on their New York City set. Now Bradt has been recognized by one of the most well known sporting publications in the world.
Lane Jacobs snapped a ridiculously clean photo of Bradt as he moved into his Oregon Tuck position coming off the lip (accidently credited to Erik Boomer in SI). The shot is featured in the Leading Off section of the May 18th issue with Manny Ramirez on the cover. SI is also featuring the video work of Rush Sturges and his River Roots productions. Check out Sturges’ eye-popping editing here. – JC
