What’s your favourite river?

I do not have one, every single river is special because it brings you a lot of fun and a new experience.


How many years have you been a rafting guide?

15 full years.


How do you spend your winters?

Eating chocolates, fries and drinking the best Belgian beer (Omer!).


Do you have a special river ritual?

Yes I do. Before heading out on the river I get water in my helmet and make myself soaking wet. That’s part of the connection between the river and me.


What’s your favourite rapid on the Kicking Horse River?

Definitely the Portage and Shotgun. It’s fun either big or low volume of water!
