Kayak instructor Aleix Salvat (@aleixsalvat) is keeping up a family tradition. His parents were also kayak instructors who took Aleix out on his first trip at 4 years old — he’s been paddling the rapids of Europe and Latin America ever since. “I love how you feel in the water,” the adventure-seeker from Catalonia, Spain, says. “You feel so alive after making it through a difficult rapid.” Despite jumping a 78-foot (24-meter) waterfall on his most recent kayaking trip in Peru, Aleix is anything but reckless. “I’m usually frightened when facing tough rivers,” he says. “You always need to keep a cool head and analyze the situation.”
