Hometown: JUPITER, FL

Bio: 4TH generation Florida Native. Grew up in/on/around the water all his life as his dad was a marine mechanic. However, as Travis life was mostly spent on boats, he did not start paddle boarding or even attempting to surf until 2014. Having a mechanic background, Travis did not think the “paddle life” was for him – until he tried it and was instantly hooked. Pushing himself to always achieve results past his goals, Travis not only took to the sport, he began racing in it as well. Racing only since December 2014, Travis trains 5-7 days a week, both on and off water. The results show as in his first year of racing he received 13 finishes in the top 3 of his division. Most racers hate the “upwind” courses, while Travis tends to excel best in those conditions. Upwinds and pivot turns = the perfect race course for Travis. If you ask Travis about paddle boarding now, a huge smile gets on his face and you realize it’s not just a sport for him anymore – it’s his life.
