The Kayak Session Paddlers Awards 2021 – The Contenders

For the fourth time, Kayak Session Magazine organizes the Paddlers Awards. 2021 was somewhat a back to normal kind of year and these awards are there to do justice to all the paddlers out there ripping it up and sharing with us all year around their incredible performances. The judging is based on the past 12 months (January through December).

There are 8 categories: Male & Female Paddler of the Year, Male & Female U21 Paddler of the Year, Event of the Year, Non-Profit of the Year, Crew Awards, and one Award that we specifically care a lot for, the honorary award: Legend Paddler Award.
