Jan Kees Kirpensteijn
Hello, I'm the founder of JKK Racing Kayaks and JKK Kayak Coaching. I have been racing kayaks since 1990. I've done the Coast to Coast 11 times most recently in 2011 & 2012 In the process of training for and racing Coast to Coast and most other kayaking events in Canterbury I've had a lot of fun and success. I enjoy passing on knowledge and skills to people who are new to the sport and old hands who want to go faster.
Kia Ora, I'm Currently in my final year of a Bachelor of Outdoor Education and Adventure Recreation Degree at Christchurch Poly Tech. My major elective pursuit is whitewater kayaking. I am passionate about all forms of kayaking and really enjoy teaching people new skills so they can enjoy some of what the great outdoors has to offer. Some of my other passions are hunting, fishing, football and marathon running, and I'm also going to line up in the next CtoC.
