Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’m a high school art teacher who serendipitously moved to a great river for whitewater sup about 10 years ago. I gave it a try and quickly fell in love. It took a couple years of messing around with various boards before trying my first Hala, an Atcha 86. It had the perfect shape, rocker, and size for paddling rapids and river surfing. I’ve been hooked ever since.
