Scott Winkleman

My first memory of paddling was in a canoe at boy scout camp. A few stokes out into that calm lake and I was hooked! I would go on canoe trips with friends on class I & II rivers for many years before I decided to take up kayaking in 2004. Once I did, I was hooked again! Since then, I’ve spent many days paddling rivers throughout Colorado and in the west including multi-day tips on the Grand Canyon, the Middle Fork of the Salmon & a five-day, self-supported trip down the 100-mile length of Arkansas River.



I recently got my instructor certification to help beginners learn to kayak. I look forward to bringing new paddlers into the sport that has had such a significant impact on my life!
