There seems to be a lot of conjecture–some of it is pretty dramatic–so I feel motivated to give some insight as to what would make me walk away from a great company like Naish. First, I want to acknowledge the huge debt […]

You can only say “Reach, Dammit, Reach” so many times before your student only hears “blah, blah, blah”. So I came up with a simple paddle […]

    March 2nd, 2011 | Contests, SUP Gladiators | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

    February 21st, 2011 | SUP Gladiators | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

      For this weeks “Gladiator of the Week” we chose Livio Menelau.  He is an accomplished racer and downwinder.  People in Hawaii seem to be pretty familiar with him (especially on Maui), but for some reason he doesn’t seem to be as well known here on the mainland.  Hopefully that will change over the course […]
