Kalob grew up on the banks of the Ottawa River, and has been a strong paddler since childhood. When he was 10, he kayaked whitewater for the first time and his world changed forever.

That first taste of whitewater motivated him to start building his skill set as a technical paddler. By age 13, he’d committed himself to learning freestyle kayaking, and less than a decade later was competing among the world’s best.

Some of Kalob’s competitive paddling highlights include winning the Canadian Junior National Championships and representing Canada at the World Freestyle Kayaking Championships, where he finished sixth.
