The first Australian and professional kayaker to join the MK Ambassador ranks, Jez Blanchard brings a wealth of success and bit of personality to the mix (the 'notes' section of his application was answered: 'don't eat the yellow snow'). The Sydney-based paddler is a four-time Australian National Champion, and has had huge success in World Cup and World Championship events in 2006, taking 2nd in one, and placing in the top 10 in others.
In addition, Jez is also a member of the NSW Riot Squad. In other words, he's an amphibious butt-kicker, putting people to shame on both land and water.
Of all the places he's never been, the top three he'd like to someday see include the waterfalls in Norway, the 'big waves' of Uganda, and the Chocolate Factory from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
