Favorite paddling adventure/highlight of last year:
My favorite paddling highlight of 2016 was being part of the first attempt to stand up paddle the Zambezi River in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe to raise money for a rhino sanctuarary in South Africa. I paddled some of the biggest rapids of my career and having to take precautions to avoid crocodile attacks was something I never thought I would ever experience in my life (check it out www.standup4rhinos.org)
A major goal of mine for 2017 is to travel back to Africa and explore some of the major rivers on the continent.
My favorite board is definitely the River Surfer. Surfing is my addiction and I owe that to Badfish. I’m super excited for the new shortboard the ‘Sk8’ that’s coming out this year. Just another way to enjoy some ridiculously fun inland surfing.
