Tell us a little bit about yourself

I live in the beautiful Bow Valley and I have been taking advantage of our untouched rivers and lakes for almost a decade now on my SUP. What drew me to paddle boarding originally was the ability to access particular backcountry objectives without having to walk around bodies of water. What keeps me in the sport, is its versatility. Chill lakes, wild rivers, multi-day trips and a solid community of competent paddlers!

I've been riding Hala boards for a couple of seasons now and I am stoked to be joining a team of skilled riders! I am looking forward to the 2023 season and new adventures on and off the water.
