Qajaq USA Board Members


Helen Wilson lives in the coastal redwood forest of Arcata, California, where she owns a business, "Greenland or Bust". She is never far from water and enjoys being underwater as much as being on the surface. Helen's passion for all types of traditional kayaking skills has drawn her to Greenland four times. She has competed in the Greenland National Kayaking Championship twice (in 2008 - Qaqortoq, Greenland and 2010 - Nuuk, Greenland). Her and her husband Mark Tozer guided expeditions in East Greenland in 2012 and South Greenland in 2014. Her next trip to Greenland will be to compete in the 30 year anniversary of The Greenland National Kayaking Championship, taking place in Sisimiut, Greenland in summer 2015.

Helen performs rolling demonstrations, presentations and instructs at events worldwide. She has written skills articles for several publications including Sea Kayaker Magazine, The Masik, Ocean Paddler Magazine and Canoe & Kayak. She is the Art Director for Qajaq USA's publication, The Masik, and administrates the Qajaq USA Facebook Page.

In May 2010 she released an instructional DVD, Simplifying the Roll with Helen Wilson. In September 2013 her and Mark released a second DVD, Yoga for Outdoor People. Both DVDs are available worldwide. Her and Mark are the organizers of the UK and US Storm Gathering Symposia. Besides from being a kayaker, Helen’s other passion is yoga. She is a registered yoga teacher (RYT), and often runs Yoga for Paddlers at kayaking events. For more, visit
