Nigel Foster

Nigel Foster is known for his well- thought-out user-friendly easy-steps teaching style, his broad experience in kayaking, and his playful sense of humor. He travels worldwide to teach kayaking skills and lead trips, but more than anything, he is recognized as the guy out there having fun doing what he does. His international kayaking reputation is built on his instruction and expeditions, his designs, (nine of his sea kayak designs have been commercially produced, not to mention his paddles, pfd's and accessories), his instructional videos and DVDs and his numerous books and articles.

In recent years he has been working closely with Point65 of Sweden. From England, Nigel was based in North Wales for many years before moving to Seattle, Washington.

You can find him on the web at Nigel Foster Kayaks, Wikipedia, or anywhere with good espresso and guitars. Beware of imitations!
