Björn Nehrhoff took his first ride in a kayak at the age of 2, when his parents headed out in an old fold boat. By the age of 12 he had his own kayak that he paddled all summer on the local lake. The cheap rubber kayak was good enough to explore the fascinating scenery. Björn was hooked on kayaking; his destinations changed to places further away from home to all over Europe and over seas. Björn enjoys capturing the outdoor life with his camera and now works as a photographer and writer for outdoor sport magazines. He has written several books and lives as a freelance writer and photographer in northern Germany.
“Paddling sea kayaks, canoes, surfskis, or SUPs puts a big smile on my face,“ says Björn. His favorite river is Nittälven Sweden and anywhere saltwater meets rocks, mountains, islands and beaches. Björn’s goal is to explore the world by kayak, and Kokatat is excited to join him for the ride.
