Team Dagger


Max Karlsson

About Me:

I was 9 when I borrowed my sister’s Dagger Dynamo and paddled down my very first rapid on Boulder Creek. My sister never saw her Dynamo again as I was immediately hooked. The more I paddled the more I realized that whitewater kayaking was my true passion. In 8th grade I decided to enroll in an online school which allowed me to travel and kayak all year around. In hopes of becoming a world class whitewater paddler I enrolled in the Swedish Canoe Federations junior academy in Nyköping, Sweden for the 2012/13 school year. At the academy we athletes are housed in dorm rooms and we train twice a day 6 days a week as well as attend regular high school. I am loving every minute here at the academy and plan to finish high school here.
