An afternoon and evening with Travis Grant and Steve West
Some years ago, we staged a successful tour with Jamie Mitchell and have now the opportunity to present to you another fellow Aussie and one of the world's foremost paddle sports athletes, Travis Grant, in what will be a memorable few hours. Staged in association with KANUculture, Water Skills Academy UK and Hayling Island Water Sports, the afternoon and evening gathering is aimed to be both informal, informative and enlightening.
Aussie, Travis Grant, is not just the Mr Nice Guy of SUP, but unquestionably, one of the most talented and naturally gifted waterman athletes of our time. Equally skilled on both SUP and OC1 and OC6 canoes, this is a unique opportunity to hear him talk story about his life's experiences which made him what he is today and to enjoy a relaxing afternoon and evening of learning. His list of achievements and string of titles in both SUP and OC is impressive being the only man to have ever won the Molokai`i on two different solo craft, that of OC1 and SUP.
Steve and Travis are connected through paddling and racing outrigger canoes in Australia, from where they both gathered most of their knowledge and skills. Ultimately, they paddled together in elite dial-a-crews. Travis features in most all of Steve's books and has been a contributing writer. Steve has watched Travis grow in stature over the years, from when he was a junior aged paddler on the Gold Coast Australia, to the lofty heights of World Champion. Steve will be assisting Travis and be on hand to lead the gathering.
