It’s been a big year for 24-year-old white water kayaker Brooke Hess. This Montana native earned a degree in fluvial geomorphology (the study of rivers), crushed as a member of the U.S. National Freestyle Kayak team and lived out of her truck while chasing flooded rivers around the world. We teamed up with @tetongravity to follow @brookehess down the river, and it was hard to keep up as she surfed waves taller than a bus. (Link in bio.) #BreakingThrough #ForceOfNature
