Kayak Builder, Instructor
Addie built her first skin-on-frame kayak with Seawolf in 2015, and hasn’t looked back since.
One fine summer day she was asked to go to Finland to pet reindeer and learn how to build boats — this sounded like a splendid idea. Since then, she has been building Seawolf’s inventory while organizing and teaching workshops with Kiliii.
