Tim began his kayaking career as a guide and ACA instructor at Woods & Water Ecotours in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan when he was in college. He cut his rough water teeth on the rocky shores of Lake Superior and Lake Huron and quickly took to Greenland style paddling. In the summer of 2018 Tim traveled to Greenland to compete in the National Qajaq Championships and has an ongoing vlog series about his travels. Now he travels to teach traditional paddling skills and rope gymnastics at symposia around the Great Lakes and beyond.



Presentations

 Competing in the Greenland Kayaking Championships
Loon - upstairs Sat 9:30am-10:15am 

Modern kayaking has its roots along the remote shores of Greenland where the lightweight skin-on-frame kayak (Qajaq) was used for hunting and travel. In modern times kayaking almost vanished in the Arctic as motorboats took the place of paddle-powered craft. A resurgence in traditional kayaking skills has grown in Greenland, where every summer a competition is held to help keep the ancient paddling skills and culture alive. Join Tim as he recounts his travels in Greenland where he competed in the National Kayaking Championships and gained a new understanding of the roots of kayaking and its place in a modern world.



 Greenland Style Kayak Rolling
Pool - Clarion Hotel Sun 12:30pm-12:50pm 

Learn about the history of kayaking with this demonstration of traditional rolling skills from Greenland. See how the use of traditional-style paddles, equipment, and technique can be applied to modern-day paddling.
