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.

Since 2013, the Outdoormix Festival has presented Europe’s best SUP River course on the Durance, which is particularly well suited to this sport, thanks to its large flats that follow class 2 to 3 rapids.
