Kate Govaars


Kate Govaars lives in southeast Alaska where she spends a lot of time paddling a SUP along the Inside Passage among sea lions and killer whales!  Kate began her kayak career over 10 years ago as a whitewater paddler and has been instructing on and off for over 8 years in whitewater, SUP, and sea kayak disciplines for colleges and paddling schools across the country.  Kate credits the Lumpy Waters Symposium for successfully converting her over to sea kayaking…though whitewater will always be her first love.
