About me: I started K1 paddling when I was 9. We moved to Cape Town from Joburg in 2007 and this is when I started training a bit more seriously. Initially I just did flat water marathon and river racing but soon the ocean bug bit and I got a surfski. I have since calmed down and don’t race as competitively as I spend my days on site working with timber. But my “retirement” from paddling made me realise that there are a lot of other sport I am interested in and that’s when I discovered White Water Kayaking and I haven’t looked back since.
