I am a professional river SUP paddler. I run whitewater on my paddle board, host clinics, do multi-day expeditions, and travel internationally with boards. I also mountain bike, backcountry ski, and backpack. I have always been excited by long distance, self-propelled adventures. I have thru-hiked the PCT, and have sea kayaked the entire 1000-mile coast of Baja's Sea of Cortez, twice. I was introduced to Skout as a local Oregon company with great taste. Bars fit nicely in my PFD from which I can grab quick energy for myself and people I paddle with."
