Trainer / Instructor / Principal
Annika Seidl - the White Water Packraft Specialist
Annika discovered her passion for kayaking at the age of 6.
Everything started with the canoe slalom sport, which she has been doing very successfully for a long time.
She was able to post a variety of successes in her account, such as For a long time, she led the Bavarian squad at the top with some Bavarian championship titles as well as two-time Vieze German championship titles.
Added to this was the fascination for whitewater.
In 2003 she completed her training as a certified kayak teacher.
Afterwards she worked for 5 years at the Soca, before she took over the management of the kayak school Prijon in Germany.
In 2013 she discovered packrafting for herself and since then has also been giving courses.
Her know-how about whitewater kayaking and slalom sports has made her a training concept especially for the packraft forces. Meanwhile, she also took over the management of Packraft School Packraft tours.
Incidentally, she sits on the board of the 1st inclusive canoe center e.V., where she strengthens for the inclusion in canoeing.
She was trained by BVK, BKV and Rescue 3 Europe.
She has successfully completed her vocational training as a sports and fitness trader.
As soon as snow arrive, you can meet her in the Allgäu Alps, where she works as a state-certified level 3 snowboard instructor and level 1 ski instructor.

Sven - the Roll Specialist
Sven, too, discovered his passion for water sports at a young age, and it all started with the white water slalom kayak.
Then he too realized his passion for whitewater.
We are very happy to have Sven on our team for a few years now in the kayak school as well as in our packraft courses.
Sven is the most patient and passionate instructor we have ever met. He is constantly brooding over how the lessons can be made simpler and more understandable in order to lead the participants to their goals faster.
Sven is also very involved in inclusion canoeing.
Of course he is also trained in Rescue 3.
When Sven can't be found on the river, he explores the mountains on his MTB.
As soon as the mountains are covered with snow, he slides them down on skis or snowboards and works as a level 3 snowboard instructor.
