Kitt Doucette | Co-Founder + Chief Adventure Designer
Kitt’s personal history pulls from all facets. He was born in Wisconsin, raised in the mountains of Idaho, and studied Spanish and international relations on the beaches of Santa Barbara. He began traveling early on, mostly with the family and the Sun Valley Ski Team, before landing a gig as a safety kayaker on the Payette and Salmon rivers in Idaho, and then the jungle rivers and beaches of Ecuador. It was on a cross-continental road trip from Alaska to South America that Kit sold his first adventure travel story to a national magazine. He’s been relying on the written word to take him all over the world ever since. As an adventure travel journalist and contributing editor for 15 years, he’s filled three passports chasing waves, snow, adventure, interesting people, and new experiences, searching for those moments that make him and the world feel big and small at the same time.
Stoke Moment: “Growing up in Wisconsin, my dad made us a badass 300-yard long sled run down a big hill in our backyard. It started in a steep, narrow chute that would rocket you around a bank, drop quickly again, and then send you flying out into the marshland below. After 30 years of a very stoke-filled life, that moment always rings as true as they come — eyes wide, hair blown back, careening down a homemade sled run, laughing hysterically each time the sled stopped, then running back up the hill to do it again.”
