Fancy A Waka Kayak In Black?

I love black boats. So if you are like me and want a Waka kayak, they now manufacturer them in black.

Juicy Home Run

Super lucky to get some juicy flow on my home river despite january’s cold temperature. This is my Home Run. The river I started kayaking on. My first strokes, my first swims, first fears, first good races, first success…It might not be the most impressive or the best whitewater in the world but it’s still very good and this place will always hold a special place in my heart.

Unsponsored Q&A Series – Aniol Serrasolses

Aniol Searrasolses is one of the worlds top whitewater kayakers. He has very quickly gained the admiration and respect of his peers. From my point of view Aniol is a kayakers kayaker and I am very pleased that Aniol has agreed to take part in the Unsponsored Q&A series.

How did you first get into kayaking? Who introduced you to the sport?

I got in to it because of my older brother Gerd. One day he saw a bunch of kayakers paddling in our local river and asked them to try it out. He was 14 maybe, we used to swim and play water polo back then but once we tried kayaking it was hard to keep motivated on the swimming and we would skip all the matches in order to go kayak. One day he invited me to try and I loved it.

Tell us a little a bit about you accomplishments in the canoeing/kayaking world.

I started out mainly in freestyle and was on the GB team for a couple of years. I then got more in to river running and have since paddled in many countries around the world along the way I have entered a few competitions here and there, my best being first in the Himalayan Whitewater Championships. I’m keen to do more adventures and expedition style paddling in the future.
