Bobby began paddling as a kid. He loves creeking, running big waterfalls, and extreme racing. But his favorite part of kayaking is paddling with his daughter, Sahalie. She is named after his all-time favorite drop, Sahalie Falls in Oregon. It is an 80 foot waterfall with a terrifying entrance and exit. He describes the experiences, “I overcame my fear and had a nice run while my lovely wife, Melissa, of about a month at the time nervously looked on, taking video and pictures. It was one of those perfect moments where everything worked out. I had a strong crew with me that day, I took on a challenging drop, and I was able to share the experience with the love of my life. On the river, I am proud to continue to explore new challenges with kayaking still after 30 years of paddling. Off the river, I am proud that I am a 2nd grade teacher who gets to continually have a positive impact on the lives of my students.”
