Mike along with pro paddler Haley Mills will be traveling around the country and heading up the tour. “Stand Up Paddling is something anyone can do. We know there are lots of people who want to try, but have not been able to make it happen…well here’s your chance. Haley and I have introduced literally hundreds of people to the sport.
