Ben

I have been kayaking and teaching people to kayak my entire life! I consider myself so lucky to live on this clear, clean, river and I love showing it to new friends! I competed in the 1996 Olympics in Kayaking and have been volunteering to help disabled folks to kayak ever since, because I would never have made it to the Olympics if it was not for going through the rehab process after a car accident at the World Championships. So, I like to help people to get out of the hospital to make the rehab process fun. . .
