Young & Wild - Wildwater Kayaking - Worldwide

Wildwater Kayaking

Young & Wild









Adrian Mattern a.k.a. Atte is the shooting star of the German white-water scene. He travels 

the world in an uncompromising way like no other kayaker currently does. His 

mind-blowing performances have left a mark on the international paddle scene.


The portrait “Wild and Young” gives insights into Adrian’s world and into the life of 

an extreme paddler. How do you get into such a sport? How can you live on that? And 

what motivates you to tackle higher and higher waterfalls?

Kayak filmmaker Olaf Obsommer has accompanied Adrian Mattern on many of his adventures.
