It´s all about passion. Valentin Illichmann is pretty passionate about nature and being outdoors. That´s why he chose to work as a carpenter. Like this he can embodie with his favorite element wood every day and connect with nature. In his free time however he follows his real passion: Stand Up Paddling. His favorite element here for sure are waves. But there are no waves where he lives. White water paddling however is pretty similar to SUPsurfing. And his home spot Bavaria is full of great river spots he can even reach by bike! A great edit by CAPAVY.
