Rotorua (New Zealand)
Hopping back and forth between Rotorua (New Zealand) and Voss (Norway) is Toni’s way of following the summer and the water to where the boating is best. After graduating with a degree in Biological Science, she boarded a plane, then a kayak, and found that nothing else is quite as good as being on the river. Three years later, and she is one of the most impressive paddlers you'll find in a whitewater kayak, male or female. Despite an intimidating resume of rivers paddled around the world, her ambitions remain humble, with time spent in the wilderness with friends still her driving goal. When not on the river, Toni swaps her boat for a surfboard, mountain bike or a pair of climbing shoes. She’s probably out there right now, going big, having fun, and making it look easy.
