Evan grew up in Deep Cove, BC and has been paddling since he was 13.

He discovered SUP though a kid’s SUP camp in Deep Cove and after a few days of camp he was invited by his coach to try racing that night. He later joined the Deep Cove Advanced Race Team (DART) Junior SUP team and has been racing with them ever since. After some great summers racing with DART, he has stayed with the team as an assistant coach. He really enjoys coaching this team and helping to develop the next generation of paddlers and see so many new kids get stoked on the water.
