I've been paddling for over 30 years on rivers, lakes and seas of Europe. I love touring and exploring and challenging with different paddle means: kayak, canoe, sup.
Nature does not need humans, it's the contrary instead. Yet humans destroy nature irreversibly. And it's hard to fight against the power of the majority.
Outdoor tourism is key to sustainable growth. An old master of mine taught me that not frequented waters become landfills and sewers. Instead the respectful attendance protects them from the damages of anthropization and disrespectful industrialization. Thus I try to bring people to see and admire the beauty of nature through its waters, and so bring them to my side, where 'economic' growth has the original Greek meaning: oikos nemein, care for home. This is my mission.
