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.)

Check out these pictures of Mac at his competitions and stay tuned for more updates and pictures of our paddleboard prodigy!

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.

Lifetime Vinyl Sheds: The Myth
Buying the right shed can be a difficult task. There are many options available ranging in size, material, design, etc. Choosing the right material can often be the most difficult part of purchasing a shed. Many people refer to Lifetime sheds as vinyl sheds; however this is not the case. Lifetime vinyl sheds are actually made out of high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE), which differs greatly from vinyl (PVC). Some of the main differences are: HDPE is much stronger and durable than vinylHDPE will not crack, chip, or shatterVinyl turns weak and brittle, especially in temperature changesHDPE is UV-protected and will not warp or change in extreme sunlightOver time vinyl can put off toxic gases into the air, ground, and waterHDPE is completely recyclable and eco-friendly So, when looking into purchasing a shed, whether a Lif...
