What's your story?
After learning to kayak with my Dad & my brother I became quickly addicted to whitewater kayaking. I travelled throughout Europe and heard about kayaking in Chile. I fell in love the country, the rivers, a girl and have not left since I spent time exploring the many rivers Chile has to offer, from Santiago all the way down into Patagonia including first descents with the legend that was Josh Lowry. In-between I have represented Belgium at 2 Freestyle World Kayak Championships. I currently teach the whitewater modules to the students at the prestigious University of Pucon and I own the Pucon Kayak Shop where we have introduced Peak UK to Chilean kayakers. When I have managed to leave Chile I have kayaked the Colca and Cotahuasi Canyons in Peru!
