Arthur - 74 Years of Paddling Klepper Folding Kayaks!

Arthur Vollmer, one month shy of his 80th birthday, looks forward to greeting paddlers at the Halifax International Boat Show and share his passion about Klepper folding kayaks. ‘King’ Arthur as he jokingly refers to himself first paddled a Klepper folding kayak with his parents on the River Rhine when he was five years old... and he hasn’t stopped paddling since.

Arthur and his wife Maria invite you to drop by booth 318 to learn more about Klepper folding kayaks and listen to captivating stories of a lifetime of kayak adventures. The couple continues to paddle their 57 year-old Klepper and the passion for Klepper folding kayaks passed on to Arthur by his parents, has been transmitted to their son Ingo. Arthur and Maria work with Ingo, a professional underwater photographer and Klepper Folding Kayak dealer, at Marlin Marine in West Arichat, Cape Breton http://www.marlinmarine.ca/ .

The Halifax International Boat show will be held from February 18 to 21, 2010.

I wish that I could go there and meet him and talk with him, but it's too far away for me to make a trip just for that. That would be quite an experience to hear his stories.

AT last the secret is out, paddling a KLEPPER not only makes you live a long time, and you don,t grow old, BUT you must do it every year. Us who are mere youngsters now know our goal is in sight,It,s about time Klepper races were in the senior games, minimum age 70 to enter. Keep it up ARTHUR. From John only almost 73 in Northern Ontario.
