Tyler started surfing almost thirty years ago and then became hooked on Stand Up Paddling while watching Laird Hamilton paddle at his home beach in Malibu. Since then he has paddling almost daily having acquired many certifications for Paddling. He has professionally trained and taught hundreds of individuals. He is Paddle Fit Certified and is an ASI graduate (Academy of Stand up Paddle Instruction). Tyler has a unique ability to make anyone feel comfortable in the ocean on a board. He is happily married to his wife Christy and is the Father of one. With a huge fleet of equipment and almost daily testing, he has a well developed understanding of the products that are available. He has been a tremendous help to us developing Groundswell Supply and we consider him a great friend.
