More about Jonas Ecker

First Strokes

I was introduced to paddling by my mom, a surfski paddler, when she signed me up for the founding summer camp of the Bellingham Canoe Kayak Sprint Team.

Off the Water

When not paddling I can be found studying Marine Biology and Chemistry at the University of Washington, skate skiing, backpacking, hiking, and cycling.
