Jeff Wueste

Jeff Wueste was born and raised in the Sonoran Desert of West Texas, which is a bit sparse when compared to his adventure resume over the past 30 years. Jeff is an accomplished ultra-marathon canoe racer with several category wins and race records under his belt, including the 340-mile Missouri River 340, the 260-mile Texas Water Safari and many shorter marathon length races. Jeff was a team member on the first expedition to paddle the entire length of the world’s longest river, the 4200-mile Amazon River, with The National Geographic Amazon Express Expedition of 2012 and was the first to kayak Europe’s longest river, the 2100-mile Volga River in Russia with partner, West Hansen.
