Jacopo just loves kayaking!  After thirty years spent climbing up and skiing down the Dolomites, in northern Italy, Jacopo has relocated to Chennai, South India. He started dreaming about kayaking in the 90's, during a break from climbing, while in bed recovering after a bike accident. He was reading Royal Robbins biography, and watching all the time a Shaun Baker ad on TV. The dream came true only in 2010, during a trip back home, when one day some friends took him to the river. Two weeks later,  he was paddling his own kayak, a third-hand modified creeker, charging down any stream on his path. From then on he's made sure that between surf sessions on the ocean waves, wild descents from the Deccan plateau, classic river runs in the Alps, his spray deck never runs dry!
