Martin Vollen

Born and raised in Heidal, Norway. Growing up on a farm with my mom, dad and brother, I had two choices of what to become in life; Kayaker or redneck. I choose kayaking. From the age of 11 I have spent every day I could on the river. Paddling for more than 20 years I’m proud to say i’ve been a part of the development of kayaking in Norway. Pushing my self and running bigger and harder stuff is definitely a motivation, but it’s not what drives me. A day on the water with good friends or on a solo mission can be just as good, if not better, as scaring my self so hard I shit my pants.

Kayaking is the best and the worst thing ever happened to me. I am never as happy as when I’m on the river. But whatever I do of the river, I miss being on the water.
