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.

Our Lifetime Playset
What is better than a trip to the neighborhood park, where you listen to the children shrill with delight while they swing, hang from monkey bars, and slide down the slides? Having your very own outdoor play system with all this and more in your own backyard.Last fall, we invested in a BigStuff Adventure Hard Roof Play System, made by Lifetime, for my in-laws backyard. Our children get to spend a few afternoons each week at their grandmas house, fortunately for them, their grandma and grandpa have a large yard and there was a perfect spot in one corner of the property for a play set. The system is free standing so I didnt have to worry about anchoring the system to the ground. However, for safety reasons, I did excavate out about 6 inches of topsoil out of the play area and filled it in with bark so the children would have a ...
A Face for Radio
This past Sunday afternoon I was able to skip out of church a little early to do a radio interview with our friends at 96.5 FM in Florida. Ken and Jared, father and son, do a weekly home improvement show called "In the House" where they invite experts in various categories to come talk about products to improve your home. As part of this interview, they are giving away a Lifetime 7'x7' Storage Shed model 60042. This was the third show of this type that I have done since Ive been here at Lifetime. I keep a tally of the number of times I say um or like or some other filler word. This time I only counted six which was a big improvement. I have to admit it is fun talking about something I am so passionate about. I am very content working out in the garden, and with the great weather weve been having here in Utah have had a lot o...
