Carolina Cup Paddle Monster Clinic Preview: Travis Grant

Travis Grant Teaches SUP, Downwinding and OC

Paddle Monster SUP and OC coach Travis Grant could be called The Master of M2O…and at this year’s Carolina Cup, he’ll be leading clinics on both SUP racing and downwinding and basic outrigger canoe skills. Grant is currently ranked third in the world.  His somewhat laid back yet serious deep-down, almost flawless approach to competition has won him the support and following of thousands across his two chosen disciplines. Grant’s ocean experience and downwind paddling success provides a unique perspective for paddlers pursuing competition in races like the Carolina Cup, the Olukai Ho’oLaule’a, The Gorge Paddle Challenge, and the Pacific Paddle Games..

Check out the Paddle Monster video where he talks about  his background and philosophy, and how a strong work ethic influences his method of training.
