Bryan Prince: Stand Up Paddleboard Rider for Seal Sports

Bryan1This summer demonstrated how popular Stand Up Paddleboarding has become in St. Tammany Parish!  With a surge in paddleboard sales and rentals, it appears to be a good time to add a passionate enthusiast (should we say fanatic?) to our team.  We are pleased to introduce to our friends and customers: Bryan Prince. Bryan will represent Seal Sports in many upcoming SUP events, and will be on hand to answer questions and assist new and experienced paddleboarders at our Stand Up Paddleboarding Demo on August 20, 2013 at Fairview Riverside State Park in Madisonville. Be sure to join us for this free and fun introduction to the Jimmy Lewis line of paddleboards, from 5-8 PM.

Bryan Prince hails from Chattanooga TN, where his love of water and adventure were nurtured from a young age.  His father introduced him to a kayak at the age of 10 and he hasn't been far from a blade during the last 23 years.

Bryan had a strong white water career paddling class 5 - 6 water for years.  He has kayaked in numerous climates and countries including New Zealand and Costa Rica. He moved to Baton Rouge in 2010 and after a year and a half found stand up paddling.

He bought his first race board in 6 months and hasn't slowed down yet.  Bryan has competed in many races over the last year and has placed in many of the events.  Bryan has won the relay in Paddle Battle at Baton Rouge two years running, placed first in the Leukemia Cup, and recently won the one mile Dig in Baton Rouge.  His goal is to be a well rounded paddler and help grow the sport of SUP in Louisiana.

Bryan is currently a race director for the Big River Regional a 13 mile race on the Mississippi River, taking place August 31, 2013. We are looking for volunteers with boats to support this race. Safety boats are needed and must be dual engine. The race will be held on the Mississippi river in Baton Rouge. If interested please contact Rob Kohl at Seal Sports: 985-674-3088

Bryan is currently training for the Chattajack a 31 mile race in his hometown of Chattanooga.
