Matador Ambassador Evan Garcia launches his new film production company, Substantial Media House, with partner Fred Norquist.

SUBSTANTIAL MEDIA HOUSE is a film company specializing in the production of whitewater films. Fred Norquist and I document our travels and experiences through an online web series featuring some of the world’s most spectacular and dangers rivers.

From Norway to Patagonia, you’ll see whitewater kayakers push the limits of what’s possible and impossible on the water. Shot in HD in some seriously beautiful locations, this one is for the people — thanks to all of you for the continuous support and love you’ve shown over the years. Enjoy and feel free to share our love for whitewater and travel with the rest of the world.
