About This Guide

Rob loves to mess around in boats, doesn’t matter what as long as he has a paddle in his hand…kayak, canoe or SUP. He is a BCU 5-Star Leader, an active BCU (Level 4) and ACA (Level 5) coach plus a Wilderness First Responder. Rob is passionate about the wet bits of our planet and it’s fauna & flora; that’s why he’s also a “Leave No Trace” trainer. Rob runs Kayak Kraft Coaching Services (kayakkraft.com) from his base on Bainbridge Island, WA USA, where he draws from his extensive paddling experience and expedition paddling including several trips to the Aleutian Islands in Alaska.
