Story I started paddling at the age of 4 on family canoe trips. We have done many canoe trips e.g. Bowron Lakes, Nahanni River, Kootenay River, Green River in Utah and Main fork of the Salmon River in Idaho.
My dad bought me my first C1 in 2013 - a converted kayak - and we started paddling together on local rivers, just easy whitewater to start. I started training with the CCE Paddling club in 2015 and have been training full time for about 2 years now.
