“The first river in my life were Chusovaya River in the Ural mountains at the age of 3 years. I don’t even know if I had a choice, because I was a water tourist in the third generation! I liked that trip, so the difficulty of the rivers gradually increased, the boats for rafting are changed, until in 2008 I finally moved to a plastic kayak. It was a revolution in my mind – kayaking became an integral part of my life, a way of learning the world and a reason for traveling to the most interesting places.”
