WHY WE PADDLE
In 2009, Mike’s sister Angela, was diagnosed with MS. It was Angela who first sparked Mike’s interest in surfing - the sport that would become his passion and business. The SUP4MS is Mike’s pledge to all MS sufferers and especially his sister, who is an energetic teacher and inspiration to many young minds.
