Sea Kayaking instructor, greenlandstyle rolling instructor and Fitness athlete


Welcome to my website. My name is Roger Andre alias KayaKid. I live in Heimdal just outside Trondheim in Norway, where I have lived all my 44 years long life. I built my own kayak age of 16, and paddled a lot in my younger days. After several years of residence because of back problems, I started to fully recover in 2013 and has since added back hundreds of hours on the water.

Kayaking has for me become the best medicine to keep my back healthy after several years of "warnings" that kayaking, downhill skiing and so on was not good for my back. I decided to brave all this and today kayaking is the best thing that gives me joy, strength, it makes hard times  and everyday life easier.

Now I am certified paddling instructor Activity leader Sea through NPF Norwegian Paddling Association and my greatest pleasure in life is to help others, give people a big smile on their face and getting to share my great interest and passion.

I allso travel around the country instructing greenlandstyle rolling classes and workshops

My big passion in Sea Kayaking is waves, surf, rolling and greenland style Qajaq where I allso compete and teach. I also have a great passion for photography and video and do a lot of missions for suppliers of kayaks and equipment gear. 


I paddle today as an ambassador and Team Paddler for:

Tahe Outdoor, the manufacturer of Zegul Kayaks who is my number one choice

Norwegian Wood Paddles, Norwegian handcrafted wood paddles

Tequila Kayaks which supplies kayaks, paddle clothing and safety equipment.

….."know your limits, respect the environments, become one with your kayak, take safety serious and enjoy your adventure»
