Show Notes

Ben Brown is considered a New Zealand whitewater legend. He's completed at least nine first descents of rivers or rapids in nine different countries. He became the first Kiwi to be given a Red Bull helmet, which is akin to being knighted in the world of extreme sports. And now he's started his own TV show, Built to Fish TV, which is gaining a huge online following.

In this episode, we talk about how Ben got started with kayaking on the Waikato River in his hometown of Hamilton, the extreme life of a Red Bull athlete, and some of his most incredible adventures, including kayaking through rebel territory and crocodile-infested waters in Uganda.

We also get into facing fear, flow states, and bouncing back from a couple of horrific injuries.

This is a rare insight into the life of someone who's constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible.
