Leslie Kolovich talks with Casey Gotcher in the studio of 30A Radio as he and his family happened to be vacationing in area!
Casey Gotcher SUP Addict, SUP Blogger, Product developer with Larry Allison creating the Elite Gladiator, and Hybrid Gladiator fins.
Casey, born in Southern California of course loved surfing. Later in life moving to land locked Austin Texas he missed surfing, but found SUP. Casey has helped arrange a SUP meetup group that now has over 500 members paddling the Colorado River, Lake Lady Bird in Austin. Casey’s wife Tanya and two sons are now following in his footsteps with all of them not only paddling, but racing. However, Tanya wasn’t so easily hooked on SUP when she started. So Casey brilliantly bought his wife a Joe Bark Custom Race board the rest is history….She now is a certified SUP instructor in Austin and “gets it now”.
Casey is a very big part of spreading the SUP Stoke with supgladiator.com blogging. If it’s happening in the SUP World Casey will know, he has his finger on the pulse of it all. Big Announcement: He and Larry Allison have come out with some new custom painted Gladiator Fins for the LSU Fans and the LA Laker Fans, and if you by chance are a Texas Longhorn fan don’t worry Casey has one for you too!
