Matko started training kayaking when he was eight years old. Seven years later he showed interest in rafting and started joining the older guides every week for rafting trips. When he turned 18 he started working as a river guide for both rafting and kayaking and having gained more experience he started guiding multi-day trips.
He loves being in or near water and lists the Clear Rivers Country as his Number 1 Huck Finn trip. His favorite pastime is pulling pranks on anyone, anywhere and at any time, so if you ever see him looking idle, beware….
