Ben Kvanli

1996 Whitewater Kayak Olympian, and 2X US Whitewater Slalom C-2 Team Member. 

I have been incredibly blessed in my life. Despite often going my own way God has put people in my life who have helped to make my dreams come true! My independence has lead me to discover many things that I wish that I had in learning to paddle, and even still would enjoy as I continue to work on my skills. My goal is to give you all that I have found and more. . . to give you what you need to improve your paddling experience.
