Paolo Buzzi - Italy

Birth date
When did you start kayaking?
I started kayaking in 1990, after 7 years in competitive weightlifting
What is your claim to fame?
Claim to fame…big words! I was probably one of the first to be river running in a small boat and doing the McLaren Falls, NZ in 1999 coming out unscathed. I kayak every weekend chasing that water!
What is your preferred style of kayaking?
There’s only one word for me – Whitewater! River running & Creeking
Your favorite boat of all time?
I have had many kayaks since I started but my favorite of all time is Dragorossi Critical Mass.
Your current favorite boat?
Dragorossi 88
Why do you paddle a Dragorossi?
Well, I’ve been with Dragorossi a few years now and their kayaks are of high performance and absolutely innovative like all of Corran Addison’s designs. At Dragorossi, from the design to the production line nothing is left to chance. We testimonials test out the boats in all conditions, giving all the necessary feedback to get the perfect kayak.
What would you like to do, that you have not had the chance to do yet?I’ve been to Canada before so in the near future I hope to do the Stikine River!
