Hildesheim, Germany. Malte learned to kayak before learning to walk, and to this day he still prefers to travel by boat. Dedicated to organising competitions and events, he works hard to spread the love for whitewater and stand up paddling in his home in northern Germany. As being a teacher, he loves to show his students the beauty of the sport and of being outdoor. Meanwhile he works as a kayak guide and loves to see people becoming paddlers.
