Gwen Truhn

 

Gwen grew up paddling calm waters in Michigan and took on more challenging conditions during the decade that she lived in New York. She learned to roll in the muddy Hudson, and loves the way it feels like a combination of two of her other passions- swimming and dancing, particularly when she ditches the paddle in favor of hand rolls. Her favorite kayak trips are those that involve breaking surf, wildlife sightings, time spent upside-down, beach combing in remote locations, excellent lunches, sunsets, or towing broken-down power boats.
