Santiago Berrueta

Santiago lives in Montreal where he paddles, raises -with Patricia- a little guy named Salvador and runs Kayak Latitude North. He lived in Baja, Mexico for several years during which he guided multi-day kayak trips. He graduated from the National Outdoor Leadership School as a sea kayak instructor and owes most of his early kayak skills to the BCU system. A BCU coach since 2009, he also became a Paddle Canada instructor in 2012 and loves teaching kayaking from coast to coast and internationally. In Santiago's approach to coaching we find some of his daily mantras: never stop learning, keep pushing your limits, expand your reality and have fun along the way
