Daniel Kilkelly Gavere was born in El Torejon, Spain. It was in high school that he developed a deep passion for whitewater kayaking and made a career as one of the first full-time kayakers in the sport. Today he has returned to Stand Up Paddle following a back injury.
I’m a former professional whitewater kayaker with an injured back. When I first heard about SUP I purchased a board and paddle before ever trying it. After the first few strokes without back pain my passion for paddling was restored. I felt excited about the new challenge and started paddling whitewater every chance I got. Now I am an International Starboard Dream Team Athlete and board designer who is in love with this amazing sport and passionate about introducing it to others.
Stand Up Paddle
The Stand Up Paddle is one of the Outdoormix’s key features. Imagine a surfer with a paddle on one of the most turbulent rivers of the High Alps and you get the S.U.P River. Find three formats on the Durance: the “boarder cross” that will make you capsize, the “long race” in pure endurance and the “slalom” for maximum technique and power. Who will last the longest on their board?
