I started kayaking when I was 5 years old. At first it was just a game but it soon became an ADVENTURE. My first time on the river was the best day of my life. We packed our gears and drove a few hours to get to the river. The put in was at the bottom of a deep canyon so we had to rope the kayaks and repeal down to the river. The canyon was beautiful. At some point I capsized in a small rapid and swam. I got scared and I was cold but I had to get back on because we were still in the middle of the gorge. I was both terrified and excited. Since then I have always kayak. I did my first COMPETITIONS at 7. When I was 9 years old, I learned how to roll and became more confident. Then I slowly discovered WHITEWATER in all its form starting river running, freestyle and extreme kayaking.

Today Whitewater kayaking is what I love the most, and what I do best.
