Kate Hives

With a quirky and often infectious personality, Kate has been moulded by the unpredictable nature of the ocean, in all the best ways possible! Now she cruises the seas and rivers paddling surf kayaks, sea kayaks, surf skis and river boats in search of her next grand adventure. Kate grew up in midst of the rocky playgrounds and long sandy surf beaches of Vancouver Island, BC, so it is no surprise that she is a member of The Hurricane Riders searching the coast for rougher waters. With a keen sense of adventure, she has always had a desire to explore; her travels so far have taken her to the oceans and waters of her own Canadian homeland from coast to coast as well as those of Chile, Malaysia, Tasmania and the UK.
