Favourite paddling spot: Austria, the Engadin, India
Achievements: Managed to do a lot of Kayak-Expeditions and have probably been the only Austrian (or one of very few) to have paddled these rivers ( Chandra, Zanskar, Beas Gorge, First D. on the lower Uhl - all in India ), Sanna at 300 on the new gauge
