I've been an athlete for Badfish Stand Up Paddle for upwards of 5 years now. I remember seeing the Badfish team out surfing at the Glenwood wave and nervously asking them if I could surf with them. I was still learning at the time and hadn't figured out how to get into a wave at that point. But they remembered me from the competition circuit. They gave me a board to try out, as well as pointers while I was unsuccessfully trying to get into the wave. It was at that point that became part of the Badfish family and I haven't looked back. Now, five years later I'm happy to announce I am the Field/Social Marketing Director of Badfish Stand up Paddle.
Badfish is a company I 100% believe in. I love that I can visit the shop in Salida and see what new board designs Zack's got cooking and they value the feedback of their athletes. Badfish has been true to who they are and what they stand for since day one and that's something that I sincerely value. I'm excited for this new opportunity.
In the next week I'll have a schedule up for the upcoming season. You'll be able to follow my tour and see if I'll be at an event near you. You'll find me at the Badfish tent. :)
