PDA Video got hired to shoot some gear profile segments from the show floor of Summer Outdoor Retailer 2009. We were stoked to have professional kayaker, philantrhopist and Cosmo’s 2008 Bachelor of the Year Brad Ludden as our host. We turned around a set of high quality HD videos in record time thanks to the hard work of Chuck Heilig, who shot and edited each piece. You can check them out here: Live From OR .
