Why I love to SUP and how I discovered it…
I fell in love with whitewater and river canyons as a raft guide. I was looking for a new challenge when I was introduced to river SUP. I have never looked back.

The body of water you’ll most likely find me on…
Anywhere on a river where gradient, constriction and obstructions are found.

Which boards I’m riding? Which one is my favorite? …
The Atcha took me through an important time in my development as a paddler. It’s stability and responsiveness helped me learn whitewater SUP. Since the advent of the Atcha 86, it has become my go to whitewater board. Incredibly nimble, stable, fast and fun.

My next dream paddling adventure is…
There’s so many rivers I want to run. I think I’ll be trying to run every river I find out about for the rest of my life.

What I do when I am not paddling?
Backcountry skiing.
