Magnus began his paddling career in the year 2000 and has since mastered his skills as a paddler, enjoying every aspect of the sport. He is equally at home in huge swells, hammering seas or calm waters, accompanied by curious seabirds or packs of seals. Aside from his many and adventurous treks with members of the Icelandic and British paddling communities, and commercial trips, Magnus has undertaken serious solo expeditions. Last but not least, Magnús is  Reykjavík Kayak Club’s leading coach and holds the BCU 5 Star Leader certificate.
