• Hosted OluKai’s first Pro Panel and Demo Day
• 1st-place OluKai downwind race unlimited division age group
• Finished 1st Book: How To Increase Your Stand Up Paddling Performance Beginner to Elite (due out late August)
• Completed first solo paddle Maui to Molokai Race 2015 M2M

My goals and desires for 2016 are to continue to teach and inspire all levels of paddlers how to be stronger for SUP. To encourage everyone in the sport to support and embrace others who wish to learn and thrive in SUP. Go a little bigger this winter wave season and to train as hard as possible for a faster finishing time for 2016 M2M, launch my new project focused on downwind paddling, and finish my second book.
