Hans Trupp

Hans Trupp has been many things; a microbrewery entrepreneur, a 29er prototyper, and an outdoor educator, to name a few. He stays busy these days as a corporate coach, management consultant and, now, a TRAK Pilot. With a deep love of nature and a passion for education, Hans also believes in the romantic and practical spirit of seamanship as it relates to piloting and appreciates the simplicity and pace that is intrinsic to kayaking. Hans has organized and lead a number of TRAK skills progression camps, applying the years of experience he gained as a NOLS instructor. Based out of Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island, Hans is always eager to deliver a fun test paddle to interested parties.
