RIVISON, ROBIN – Robin was born in New Zealand and took up canoeing after coming to Canada. When car-camping in Algonquin Park a friend told him that he had to go canoeing and taught him the basic strokes. He has since paddled extensively in Ontario and Quebec and even taken a canoe back to New Zealand for paddling adventures.
