Sponsored by Sunova SUP and Kialoa Paddles I grew up in Falmouth Maine, nestled in a house built in the 1740s, the same house in which my mother and her three brothers were raised. I spent the majority of my childhood on the ocean, fishing with my uncles or on adventures with my cousins at our family cottages on Cliff Island and Little Sebago Lake. I caught my first wave in 1995, while attending college at the University of Oregon, Eugene. I moved back to Maine in 2000, and started surfing more regularly with my high school friends. In 2010, I purchased my first stand up paddleboard online, mainly for flat water paddling to keep in shape when the waves were absent. I caught my first wave on a sup several months after and was immediately hooked. I currently live with my wife and daughter in Cape Elizabeth, ME and spend my free time exploring with my family, surfing with friends, and racing my paddle board throughout New England.
