Maike is a whitewater paddler from Germany. Like many of our team paddlers Maike grew up in a kayaking family, spending nearly every weekend and holiday on family paddling trips. She still spends most of her time on the river always searching out the stoutest runs, exploring new places. Relatively new to racing, Maike claimed an impressive 2nd place at the OETZ trophy – Extreme Kayak World Championship 2021. It is very easy to be misled by her incredibly friendly and calm nature, BEWARE, when sitting in a kayak she turns into a weapon! We are excited to see where kayaking takes Maike this coming season.
