Mike is a Stand Up Paddleboard athlete from North Vancouver, BC. He has been paddling since 2008 and competing since 2010. Mike competes primarily in racing events but also competes in surf and river events.
Mike has been among the top racers in BC and Canada over the past few seasons. This success has led him up and down the West coast to race and the biggest challenge awaits this coming November in Fiji. Mike has been selected to represent Canada at the 2016 SUP World Championships.
Mike will be racing in the Distance and Technical race events against the best paddlers from around the world. This will be the biggest race to date in Mike's racing career and he hopes to represent himself and Canada as best that he can.
Mike works full time as the Operations Manager of Deep Cove Kayak Centre. Deep Cove provides an excellent location for flatwater racing and training. In Deep Cove Mike runs the Tuesday Night Paddlesport races and the annual Board the Fjord SUP race every September.
When Mike is not paddling or surfing he can be found with his partner Karly and children Kanami and Kane.
