About Mike, Our Founder

Mike has always been drawn to the ocean having been born on Long Island, raised in Rhode Island until his family moved to the Virgin Islands. Snorkeling, free diving, scuba diving and surfing were his passions growing up. After graduating from high school he worked for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on the National Underseas Laboratory System in St. Croix called Hydrolab. Then he relocated to Miami where he continued to work for NOAA at the Miami diving office and served the diving community as a paramedic treating dive accident victims in their recompression chamber. As a registered nurse/paramedic and a professional firefighter for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Mike helped establish the discipline of Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) for both for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
That platform enabled him to help promote search and rescue training around the world and respond to numerous disasters including; the Haiti earthquake in 2010, the 9/11 terrorist attack at the World trade Center, the Oklahoma City Federal Building Bombing, the Humberto Vidal Building collapse in Puerto Rico, the Southern Africa Floods, earthquakes in Columbia, Turkey and Taiwan along with Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and numerous other hurricanes including Hurricane Andrew.
Mike has been an avid mountain biker, windsurfer and waveski surfer to relieve stress and maintain fitness as a firefighter. But it was when he purchased his first surfski that his understood just how exhilarating and beneficial it was to paddle for fitness and relaxation.

We have partnered with the best companies in the sport to bring personalized concierge services to the paddler.
