Why Mino loves kayaking?
Because kayak introduces me into places that most of the time it’s impossible to access by other means. I love to explore the world and I have found that white water kayaking allows me to find new places to explore.
Also, I work as a kayak instructor at RIVERGURU, which is a kayak school owned by me and my colleagues located in Spain. So as you can see, basically all my life spins around kayak.
