ZACK HUGHESZACK HUGHES

LEAD SHAPER AND DESIGNER

Zack Hughes: Born in San Francisco and raised in San Diego, Zack has been surfing and skateboarding since the days when mulletts and trans-ams were really cool not just ironically cool.

Drawn to Colorado and later Honduras to be a kayak instructor and whitewater rafting guide, Zack quickly became one of the top freestyle kayakers in the golden years of the mid-1990′s.

Zack has raced downhill mountain bikes on the semi-pro level, but his true passion is for water and stand up paddling has helped him feed his stoke while living far from the coast.

Zack lives in Salida, Colorado with his wife and two beautiful daughters.

Having grown up in a very creative environment, Zack is a craftsman, artist and athlete who is always refining Badfish shapes through innovative design.
