Mad Goat’s Kayak School

What do crazy goats have to do with kayaks, you wonder? The idea of Mad Goats came about when Tomas Hansson was walking in the mountains of New Zealand. When he heard wild goats bleating, he started to bleat back. Finally, Tomas was so good at bleating that the goats answered him.
Goats have the qualities we believe are important in the outdoors and for life in general. They are strong, fun, adaptable and tough.
Today, Mad Goat’s Paddling team consists of Ops-manager, Filip Johansson, and several experienced paddle instructors. We all have a passion for paddling – as well as goats – and work to ensure that the pleasure of paddling is passed on to others.
