Lifetime Sponsors First Paddleboarder, and He is Only 10!

It is quite common in the wild world of outdoor sports, for companies to sponsor up-and-coming paddlers.  Lifetime has just taken on the sponsorship challenge.  As you may have read in my earlier blog about our Lifetime Hooligan Youth Stand-up Paddleboard, we found a Utah local who is sure to make a splash in the paddleboard world.

We would like to introduce you to our super kid, Mac!!  He is only 10 years old but is quickly becoming a master of Stand-up Paddleboarding!  Mac’s dad, Gary, is a long-time surfer and has bestowed his wisdom and skill upon his son. 

Mac has been entering paddleboard contests around  Utah, and has been blowing away his competition!  He recently placed 1st in the Weber River Paddleboard Race and the Jordenelle Reseviour Paddleboard Race. Congratulations, Mac!  His Dad says that everywhere he goes, people tell him that Mac is the next big thing in paddleboards. The best part, he wins these competitions on either the Lifetime Hooligan or the Lifetime Freestyle XL!!  Many of the other athletes have $3,000 paddleboards!! Yikes!  Who needs an overpriced board when the Lifetime Paddleboard is so affordable, efficient, and fun! (The Lifetime Hooligan is only $249 at Sports Authority.)

Position at Lifetime Products- Watersports Marketing Manager for Lifetime and Emotion brand kayaks

How long at Lifetime Products- Since January 2012!  I came as a packaged deal with the acquisition of Emotion Kayaks where I’d been for over a year.


Topics I blog about- Events and news in water sports, places to kayak, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Any of the Kayaks and paddleboards.  One of these days I’ll get my hands on a Fold-up Trailer and a Camp and Tailgate Table!

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me- This question will always depend on the season!  When the weather outside is frightful, you can find me at one of the nearby ski resort enjoying the fresh snow and crisp air or snowshoeing through the mountains.  Once the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping, my Saturdays are spent outdoors hiking, backpacking, biking, paddle boarding or my most favorite activity of all, kayaking!  All while enjoying the company of good friends of course!

My favorite escape- Anything whitewater, whether it be kayaking or rafting.  A more relaxing escape would be taking my camera out into the wilderness to photograph everything from wildlife to serene landscapes.

Garage Clean Out
Have you ever seen a garage that is so jam-packed with boxes and other stuff that theres no room to park a car in there? Wait. . .did I just describe your garage? In Arizona, where Ive lived for the last seven years, basements and attics are a rarity, which leaves the garage as the sole storage place. Not surprisingly, we see a lot of cars parked in the driveway! But it doesnt have to be that way. Assuming that you would LIKE to be able to park your car in your garage, let me ask you a few questions: Whats in your garage? A lot of things that end up in our garage are there because we just didnt have the courage to keep walking them to the curb. Look around. What do you see? To get a really good idea of what you have, group like items; for example, lawn and garden, camping equipment, holiday decorations, etc. Would you rath...

Win A Tandem Lifetime Kayak for Your Valentine!
This giveaway has ended. Valentine's Day is next Monday and lovebirds everywhere are scrambling to find just the right gift. I'll be the first to admit that most people probably don't think about buying Lifetime products for Valentine's Day. After all, we don't make traditional Valentine gifts like sparkly diamond jewelry, yummymelt-in-your-mouth chocolates, or beautiful long-stemmed roses. And, we only have two or three products that are even red or pink in color. But, if you think outside the heart-shaped box just a bit, we do have an ideal Valentine gift that's perfect for romantic outdoor enthusiasts a kayak built for two (actually three)! Think about it. What better way to bond with your Valentine than to give a gift that the two of you can enjoy together. Sure, depending on where you live, you may have to wait a few mo...
