Jensen was a legend of the canoe world. A founding member of the Minnesota Canoe Association, he spent most of his adult life designing, building, and racing canoes. Although Jensen is best known for his racing innovations, his improved canoe designs and ergonomic bent-shaft paddles would eventually trickle down to recreational paddlers around the world. So, too, would the more efficient paddling techniques pioneered by Gene and his partners.

In 1948, Gene and his partner Tom Estes won the 450-mile Aquatennial Canoe Derby, a ten-day stage race that ran from Bemidji to Minneapolis. It was their first major victory. Later, with Estes and a number of other partners, Jensen won major races all over the US and Canada.


That's an excerpt from one of many interviews... which run alongside a gallery with shots like this:
