Andy Birkett

Paddling both rivers and marathons is my passion, it is a part of my DNA. I love racing, the tactics and the mental/physical challenge that goes hand in hand with winning. I don’t believe in talent, I believe in hard work, determination and discipline.

In 2022 Andy Birkett put together a fantastic string of wins including World Games and ICF World Champion titles. Added to his sensational success abroad this year were wins in the toughest local events, including Dusi (12 wins and 9 in a row), the Fish (2022 SA Champs), and the Drak river(8th win) events.

Andy has been a Maurten Athlete since 2018, racing for Team EuroSteel. His Maurten product of choice is the Drink Mix 320.
