TEAM >TEAM PYRANHA USA & CANADA
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
BIO:Hi there! My name is Jared Seiler. I live outside of the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have been kayaking for 15 years.
My dad got my brother and I started when we were 11 and 12. I started paddling for Pyranha about 5 years ago.
I had the privilege of living in the Team Pyranha Van down by the river for 4 consecutive summers with fellow Team Pyranha member and good buddy David Fusilli also accompanied with my brother Graham and others.
Our first year on tour the 3 of us spread the gospel of Demshitz ( www.demshitz.com ), which has since left a huge "Brown" stain in the paddling community.
Our forte' consisting of big waterfalls and benders, living the dream if you will, with Pyranha enabling us the whole way through!
I started paddling Pyranha boats because I knew they were the best boats on the market, and its been a pleasure, to say the least, watching the company grow and perfect the science of boat manufacturing and marketing. I am very blessed to be a part of the family. I am definitely a Pyranha boater for life!
Current Missions: I recently took on a new profession and am studying to become a Registered Nurse. Needless to say, my full time paddling adventures have sidelined, but I am still managing to get out here and there.
This past year I was able to get to Chile, my winter home away from home for the 5th consecutive year as well as a couple short and sweet trips to California and the Northwest USA! I am hoping to get more trips like 'dem in the near future, especially with these sweet new boats, The JED and the SHIVA!
Boats: I paddle the Medium sizes of the JED And SHIVA - weighing in around 150 lbs soaking wet and a towering 5'4'' in shortness. These boats are the best kayaks I have ever paddled, I couldn't be more stoked! Check out demshitz.com for videos and pictures of our adventures! Thanks Pyranha!
