How were you introduced to SUP?
I paddled in the Yolo Board Relay Series in 2008. My very first experience on a board was racing, from that moment I was hooked.
Where is your favorite paddle spot?
Nothing beats the Gulf of Mexico anytime of day & the Choctawhatchee Bay.
Who do you paddle with?
My family and the extensive Yolo Family.
What do you like best about the sport?
SUP is an anytime, anywhere sport. There is so much variety between conditions, locations and paddle partners that it never becomes old. I particularly like to get out in the Gulf when there is surf with my kids. It’s the one activity we can all do together.
Are you involved with any other organizations?
I am involved with USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis & I volunteer at our local schools.
