We've known Pat since he was a young tot. He's one of the most calculated paddlers we know. He can also break a car down in to a million parts and put it back together again, while giving you finacial and stock market advice. Pat is smart beyond his years and his paddling style has been called "extraordinary" by seasoned pros and paddling legends. He's been trained and coached by the world's best, and shadowed leading industry boat designers since he was a kid. Pat is a whitewater legacy, he learned to read whitewater with foam boaters and had raft guides-kayakers for parents, it's no wonder he's one of the leading whitewater boaters in the country.
