SUP Gladiator Welcomes 4 New Team Members
  • Since our big team announcement in February, we have been hard at work filling a couple of remaining holes on the team.  I am extremely pleased to announce 2 additions to our California Team and 2 additions to our Florida Team.

    California

     

    Shae Foudy

    Shae is still an young paddler, but already probably a top 10 paddler among the Elite Women in our sport.  Aside from being such a great paddler, she is a fantastic person and a great role model for the generation behind her.  She has an infectious personality, and I have yet to meet anyone that doesn’t think the world of her.  In addition to SUP Gladiator, she also rides for Riviera, as well as a few other sponsors.  Full bio page to come.

    Daniel is another young paddlers from the South Orange County Area, but he is a complete force on the water.  I got to witness this first hand in North Carolina, where he beat a lot of very good men, who have been been paddling for far longer than he has.  He also really turned some heads in the Hano Hano Race finishing 3rd place in the 14′ class, right behind Chase Kosterlitz.  Daniel also rides for Riviera, and probably has the prettiest board I have ever seen those guys make.

    The sky is the limit for both of these two paddlers, and with Mike Eisert, Jamie Donnelly, and Jeramie Vaine training them, they are going to only get better.

     

     

     

    Florida

     

    Kieran Grant

    Kieran joins an already stacked team of Elite paddlers in Florida, making this team a bit of an all star squad for the Sunshine State.  Kieran has been on a role lately, winning several big races in Florida over the last 2 months.  In addition to that, he also just set the course record in Key West this last weekend, taking the current record from fellow SUP Gladiator Team mate, Rob Rojas.  Kieran is also sponsored by Hovie SUP, as well as several other companies.  In addition to being a top notch racer, he is equally proficient on the SUP surfing side.

    Connor is a paddler I have been following for a little while now.  He is an excellent racer, and maybe even better surfer.  The first thing you will notice about Connor, is he seems to be always smiling.  When other paddlers were crossing the line in Carolina after 12+ miles of grueling paddling, Connor was all smiles.  He got top honors at the Key West Classic for 12’6 Class, and also podiumed at Carolina Cup in the 12’6 class.  Look for great things this year from this young fellow.
