Tell us a little bit about yourself

​​My name is Candace. I grew up paddling whitewater in Oregon, paddle-rafted/inflatable, kayaking, and rowing my whole life. I'm lucky enough to live in the PNW and have rivers close and running all year long. Once I found White Water paddle boarding, I was hooked!! I personally feel safer on a SUP than other vessels; it’s a giant inflatable shield, and who doesn’t love the feeling of walking on water? Stoked to be representing the best whitewater paddleboards around!
