Macstyl Sasao

Mactyl Sasao grew up in Palau, where he paddled an outrigger canoe, climbed coconut trees, and hunted for crabs. He was introduced to kayaking—and fell in love with the sport—while attending high school in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. After returning to Palau, he immersed himself the advanced arts of Micronesian hunting and fishing and competed in outrigger canoe competitions throughout the South Pacific. He later traded his fishing spear for an underwater camera, and now uses photography to promote environmental conservation. Macstyl loves sharing his passion for Palau’s natural and cultural treasures with travelers from around the world.
