Dave Potts, kayak fishing, website

Before joining our team, Dave became a key element of our local Heroes on the Water chapter. Helping wounded and recovering Veterans get an introduction to kayaking and kayak fishing is near and dear to his heart. Every month you'll find Dave and the rest of the Heros on the Water volunteers providing kayaks, friendship and expertise to our honorable military men and women. He is a valuable resource for your kayak fishing needs.


Ursula Barnhill, recreational kayaking

Ursula's passion for kayaking and paddle sports is very contagious. She has nine years of consistent paddling experience in a variety of conditions and several different kayaks. And just as everyone should paddle on a regular basis, she's happy to let you know if she thinks you're not getting enough time on the water.

An avid traveler, he has sailed both monohulls and catamarans of all sizes throughout North America, the Carribbean, and areas of the South Pacific. If you can't find him in the shop, you can find him racing somwhere around the nation with his J/24 Team YounG'uns.
