Sometimes dreaming about kayaking is as close as we can get


A little bit about us

We are full time kayak instructors who travel the world spending endless summers teaching and adventuring. We write a digital kayaking magazine called Dreaming of Whitewater that allows us to share some of our knowledge, information, stories and photos.

If you would like to receive our magazine, you can subscribe here (you won’t be spammed).

We endeavour to bring out three magazines a year. The magazine is currently free, however donations are greatly appreciated.

We would love to hear from you about what you would like in the magazine - technical information, gear, rescue or a certain kayaking topic.

Please contact us at

See you on the water!
Happy kayaking,

Daan and Jess

We are passionate kayak instructors who have made our careers by spending time in our kayaks. We aim to be on the water as much as possible, spending between 250 and 300 days a year in our boats. We spend our year traveling around the world, finding water we like so we can teach and adventure. Linking together summers is what we are after. We love the sport and we love the people we share this sport with.
