Caj Koskinen, Customer Support Finland
Caj is mostly known from his awesome Viking appearance and his peculiar sense of humor but other than that he is a passionate outdoor person and after getting his first packraft 2015 it became more like a lifestyle for him and his wife Katja. Caj is also a great photographer, blogger and You tube- videoblogger. He works as a content creator in Scandinavian Outdoor in Finland. Caj is crazy about planning adventure trips and collecting old vintage axes and fixing them. Caj has been an active member of the Nordic packrafting scene and usually has a bunch of packrafting friends around him as he is indeed very fun to be around.
Katja Koskinen, Customer Support Finland
This red pocket rocket is as passionate about outdoor life and packrafting as her husband. She loves long hiking and packrafting trips in the Nordic wilderness far away from civilization. Katja and Caj live in south Finland in Turku where there is not so much white water which is why they are always on the road towards north whenever possible. Katja is a florist and a gardener but she also works as a guide in the winter season.
Max Clemencon, Customer Support France
After many years of mountain biking, Max discovered packrafting in 2016 while living in one of the best packrafting destinations in the world- New Zealand. Two years later, after relocating to Slovenia, Max initiated the 1st European Packrafting meetup on the banks of the infamous Soca river. He now lives in the French Alps where he spends as much time as possible climbing up mountains on skis, barrelling down trails on mountain bikes and enjoying the French rivers in his packraft and even...his kayak !
