Kyle Mulinder was out kayaking on the Pacific when something emerged from the water next to him. The creature in question was a seal, which are quite common in the area. However, the animal did something unexpected – it slapped Mulinder with a beast from the deep.
Mulinder is a proud New Zealander. He grew up on a sheep farm on the country’s North Island before chasing his love for adventure on the South Island. He worked as a rafting instructor before becoming a kayak guide around the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park.
For Mulinder, there was simply no place on earth like New Zealand. And he was eager to share his experience of his native country with the world. With that in mind, he established his own website – Bare Kiwi – and used social media to document his adventures.
