I have been a paddler all my life. I fell in love with kayaking at an early age when my father would take me out in the ocean on our trips to the beach. Being out on the water and seeing all the wildlife made a huge impact on me and helped create life-long memories I still have today. As I grew up and was able to make trips myself, I began exploring rivers around central Texas. This is where I really started to get into kayaking. I have found myself in a variety of different kayaks over the years and have just recently had my first experience in a Hobie pedal-drive kayak.
Down at the Texas coast lies a stretch of undeveloped island, secluded from crowds of beachgoers while filled with wildlife and unspoiled natural features. The Padre Island National Seashore is a treasure to fishermen, campers, windsurfers, and bird watchers.
My first kayak was a birthday gift given to me in response to a steep increase in my saltwater fishing interests. Since then, I have made it a priority to get down to the flats on the Texas Coast as often as I can.
