This dude is one of few teens who can say he’s been a raft guide since he was 13. He used to loved pulling out his driver learner’s permit for clients when they didn’t believe his age. A hard-working kid and an evil ping pong player, he fits in quite well at Alaska Rivers Company as a boatman. Kyle grew up in Cooper Landing, enjoying the fruits of our community (our locals love kids) and, at one point, was the only eighth grader in a school the size of 12 students. At 16, he had his first experience rafting and hiking the Grand Canyon and officially became an addict. Currently a student at South Anchorage High, Kyle leads a rough life of living in the ski resort town of Girdwood in the winter and Cooper Landing in the summer until he completes high school. So basically when he’s not studying and going to school, you’ll find him rafting folks down the Kenai River, ocean or river fishing with friends, downhill skiing at Alyeska Ski Resort, or cross country skiing and shooting a rifle for the South High teams. He doesn’t spend much time practicing ping pong anymore, which is really annoying because he beats everyone.
