Danny Walton hails originally from the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland Ohio. The snow-covered peaks of the Sawtooth mountains and Sun Valley resort were calling him into the mountain lifestyle 19 years ago.
Walton, a professional big mountain skier first got on a sup in 2010 and was instantly hooked. He loves all aspects of the sport. The season starts with the Mountain snow run off which makes for Great White Water sup fun. When that slows down the Lakes have thought out and he can be found on the beautiful Sawtooth lakes. Then throw in a couple trips to the Oregon coast to get salty and surf.
