I’ve always been interested in water activities, and my home in Knoxville, Tennessee, was on the river where I fished, paddle boarded, and swam. I’ve lived near the water my entire life because I love it so much. Personally speaking, water sports like paddle boarding have provided me with a means to stay active even after suffering multiple spinal injuries from competitive motorcycle racing injuries that made pain a daily struggle and resulted in surgeries. Paddle boarding gave me a new way to enjoy being active, and it’s really helped me form a greater connection to myself and to the water.
