Introduced to kayaking in a slalom club at 11 years old with my brother after trying many popular sports, we raced only a year. Leaving this sport for few years, I came back to get this love back into my life. Since 10 years, I invest my time standing on the shore, developping passionate paddlers in a country and a city where Hockey is religion. Between instructing, coaching and developping provincial and national programs for all ages (so watching people paddling) on a one of a kind site, I spend the few minutes left paddling, enjoying and finding La Belle Province jewels. Always jumping in water looking for fun and challenges, Pyranha boats are the perfect deal for me!
