Ronny Riise, Sea Kayaking Norway
Ronny runs a small kayak centre on the west coast of Norway. He grew a passion for paddling in Honduras, fly-fishing from a kayak amongst the Mangrove trees some 20 years ago.
Facilitating for people to develop from being in the outdoors is still the main reason why he paddles. Ronny works part time as a teacher at an outdoor college and spends lots of time in the outdoors, both on the water and in the mountains. He is an Advanced Sea Kayak Leader and Sea Kayak Leader/CNTP/Paddlesport Safety and Rescue Provider.
Paddling has taken him to lots of places along the Norwegian coast as a guide and coach, as well as being a guest coach on different overseas Symposium, his favourite being the Anglesey Sea Kayak Symposium.
