This album represents a duo of the finest, humble, and most heartwarming families we at BCSKI have ever come across.

a. 1985 – James River, VA. Travis Overstreet Sr introduces his son [Travis II] to the world of moving water. ‘Even at a young age, I knew my life would inexplicably revolve around rivers and creeks’.

b. 1986 – Nantahala River, NC. The following year, Dad decided to put Travis II in a C-1. Clearly, Travis II struggled at first… but soon he became an incredible slalom C-1 competitor. He typically placed last in every event due to his passion of surfing, playing in hydraulics, and chasing every line most racers avoid. Racers were always envious they didn’t use every river feature!

c. 2016 – Roanoke River, VA. Fast forward 30 years and you will find Travis II sharing his love for the water, not only with everyone he encounters, but TWO more Overstreets! Double trouble!

d. 2017 – Back Creek, VA. Travis II and his son Gavin (OC-2) paddle more miles in 4 days than most of us can do in single wet season!

If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Travis, his father, his incredible wife Jennifer, or his two bright children Gavin and Gaby… we encourage you to watch this video vimeo.com/219848075 ! For even more about Travis, check out his Vimeo page [KrazyCboater] and please feel free to share!
