I have not surfed in well over 3 years, after the sport being an integral part of my life for over 18 years. I started my career in the the surfing industry and was an avid surfer as well. I am going to get back in the water with my new custom ride from Matt Kechele. I have been riding Matt’s boards since I was about 17 years old and still remain loyal to his brand. I like to say that the surf industry raised me to the be the business person I am today and a lot of credit goes to the loyal friends and colleagues I have in the industry.
The Brevard Cycling Team had several team members competing in what was an extremely fast and WINDY course. Gayna Hansen placed 5th in Women’s Cat4 in her first race. Thomas Smith, Mike Monopoli and Rob Marchello all competed in Masters B, with Tom taking the highest placing on the team at 19th. Eric Thompson compete in CAT 5, but unfortunately had a mechanical a few laps in.
