'Ramon possesses a variety of admirable qualities that set him apart from any other person I have worked with. His combination of professionalism, diplomacy, child-like enthusiasm, and an insatiable drive to learn and succeed as an individual, coach and family man is inspiring. In my career spanning 14 years of National and International canoeing competition as an athlete and still now with continued interest in the sport, Ramon has been a rock solid support person and mentor.'
Lisa Russ (nee Oldenhof) Dual Olympian 2004/08, Bronze Medal WK4 500m 2008
'I have worked with Ramon for over a decade and his dedication towards my best performance has never ceased. He is the reason I have reached the heights I have in sport.'
Jesse Phillips, 2012 Olympian - 6th K2 200 metre Double Kayak
'The training sessions provided a great balance of fitness and technique. I felt that Ramon locked in on precisely those aspects of my stroke that were weakest and clearly explained what I needed to do to get better. The video sessions were also a great way of understanding what improvements I can make and how. I recommend his sessions to any paddler.'
