Sheri Tingey defied the odds and expectations of those around her by starting a company at age 50 that revolutionized the outdoor industry and changed the way paddle sports in the backcountry are viewed around the world.

‘Sheri’ is an incredible story about Sheri’s life, the hurdles she overcame to launch her company, and the brilliance and commitment she brings to the world. It is the story of her son, Thor Tingey, who built the company alongside his mother, but has only recently begun to fully grasp her level of dedication and what she has created not just for him, but for adventurers around the world. Sheri’s story will warm hearts while also challenging the audience to grapple with presumptions about who belongs.
