Why I love to SUP and how I discovered it…
I love any paddle sport and SUPping was an easy one to add. I discovered whitewater SUPping when I tried a river board left behind by an international paddler a few years back. Then about 2 years ago, I bought a whitewater board and started to run the local stretch.
The body of water you’ll most likely find me on…
I love surfing and paddling whitewater the most, but I enjoy paddling rivers through to surf!
Which boards I’m riding? Which one is my favorite? …
Currently, I am paddling a Hala Atcha. The board just makes whitewater easier. From the rocker to the narrow nose to allow for easy switching. Looking forward to getting my hands on a Hala Peño!
My next dream paddling adventure is…
South America is also good, but at the moment there is so much potential in Africa for whitewater SUPping that I am spoilt for choice. Madagascar is currently top of the Africa hit list.
What I do when I am not paddling?
Full-time Civil and Environmental Engineer, but most of my time revolves around family and paddling. This includes paddling with the family!
