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.

2017 Plans/Goals:

A major goal of mine for 2017 is to travel back to Africa and explore some of the major rivers on the continent.

Favorite Board:

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.
