Kayak Ways is the online home of Cheri Perry and Turner Wilson. Together they provide a range of Greenland skills and greenland rolling courses as well as boat building/paddle making workshops and yoga for paddlers. They have also produced the first in a series of instructional DVD with Justine Curgenven.
Cheri & Turner joke that although they own a property in Maine, they actually live in a rental car as they spend a significant period of the year touring the world coaching.
Cheri competed in the Greenland National Kayaking Championships in both 2004 and 2005, in events ranging from rolling to individual and relay races, winning a dozen gold medals. She has won several rolling competitions in the United States and is widely regarded as one of the best Greenland-style kayak rollers in the world. She has offered demonstrations of Greenlandic kayaking techniques to many groups across the country, and she has given several presentations relating to Greenlandic kayak technique and Greenlandic culture
Turner Wilson is a skinny sticker for 15 years, and one of those rare paddlers outside of Greenland who began paddling with a traditional blade, Turner has taught Greenland-style kayaking for 10 years, at several international kayaking symposia.
Turner competed in the Greenland National Kayaking Championships in July of 2005, in events ranging from rolling to individual and relay races, winning 6 gold medals.
