Name: Jamie Sutton
Hometown: Okere Falls, New Zealand
Sports: Mainly White Water Kayaking, but a keen amateur interest in Surfing, Paragliding/speed flying and Biking.
My name is Jamie Sutton, and I have been kayaking with a ferocious enthusiasm for maybe 8 years or so. With a few sweet successes in the extreme kayak racing scene I have become more and more motivated and a little ambitious. Although I am not a professional like my three time World Champion Brother Sam Sutton, I have won a little bit of money in past races and therefore over optimistically consider myself a semi-professional at the great sport. Kayaking has driven me to travel all around the world (no easy feat being only a semi-professional), and it was kayaking that originally brought me to Voss, for both the Ekstremsport Veko and amazing rivers on offer. I am now splitting my time between the paddling Mecca of Voss, and my home New Zealand and the warm waters it has to offer.
