WWGP epic time!

The WWGP has come to the end! It has been 14 really intense days, competing, traveling, partying and discovering the incredible whitewater that Quebec has to offer! Best two weeks trip ever!

Congrulations to Dane Jackson, the grand prix champion at this 17 years old....

Thanks to Bombflow Magazine for all those sick videos, lot of work to make a video almost everyday! Congratulations!

In the end, I moved from 6th to the 9th position after a really bad race on the last stage, but anyway super happy to have made the top 10, super keen to come back and do it better in next editions, this event it's the coolest thing ever made in kayak! I also received the Honey Badger award, a 200 hundred dollars prize wich definitely is gonna help me a lot on my stay In Canada.

I'm now staying in Canada till October, paddling In the Ottawa valley for the rest of the summer and maybe with a little bit of luck BC in the end of August, we'll see, super excited to paddle lots of waves and some good stouts as well!
