Mike was one of the first athletes I had the fortune of working with on my inaugural (paid/awarded) outdoor industry campaign (Chaco) 15 or so years ago. I was a green and eager shooter out of the Midwest, stoked to be out of the studio circuit and into the wild. From Oregon, Colorado, Idaho to South Carolina and Arkansas - I’ve followed Mike and his crew as they chased down whitewater swell around the world. From playboat kayaks, to the first whitewater standup surfboards - it’s been fun to witness the evolution of the sport. Thanks for showing me the ropes, Mike!
