Aniol Serrasolses

Aniol is from the Catalonia region of Spain and was introduced to paddle sports by his brother. He loves traveling and meeting people he can introduce the sport to.

Why do you love kayak paddling and how and why did you start to paddle?

My name is Aniol Serrasolses. I’m 27 years old and I am from Catalonia. I love kayaking because of how it makes me feel. When I am in the river, nothing else in the world matters. I love it because of the wild and unique places it’s taken me, the great people I’ve met along the way… I started kayaking when I was 13 years old because of my older brother Gerd. We found the sport by accident and fell in love with it right away.

Tell us about the coolest places you have paddled and your top achievements.

The Karakorum mountain range in Pakistan and the Apaporis in the Amazon are some of the most incredible places I’ve seen.

Your favorite products and why

My favorite products are the Strutter and the Intergalatic DrySuit. I paddle most of the year in cold water, so being warm and dry for long days or short sessions, keeps everything that much more pleasant. The Strutter has been my go-to helmet for years, I love that thing and it protects your eyes from the sun.

Tell us about arrangements you are engaged in.

The SB program. A traveling kayak school that benefits children with talent and motivation to paddle but with no resources to do so.

What are your plans for the time to come?

More expeditions all over the world, new first descents, races and video projects.
