About: Nate Hanson's enthusiasm for kayaking is hard to hide. With an encouraging teaching style, Nate enjoys helping students discover new possibilities in a sea kayak, working with each individual to attain his or her own personal paddling goals - whether that's surfing a tide race, or simply getting into a boat without tipping over.
He has served as an instructor at the Bay Of Fundy Sea Kayak Symposium, the Downeast Sea Kayak Symposium and is a returning instructor to the West Isles Sea Kayak Symposium. Nate is proud to be a Regional Ambassador for Kokatat.
