Slater Trout

World renowned race, Slater Trout will be at PaddleSplash this year, hosting a set of clinics for adults and kids. Slater knows a thing or two about kids and racing because he started his great career at the age of 11. And by the time he was 14, at the adult racing level he earned the title of “2nd fastest Stand Up Paddler in the World.” Slater continues to impress with his recent climb up the SUP Racer Worlds Rankings to the #16 spot due to his spectacular performance in France last month.

Slater enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience with all paddlers, especially the kids – he believes that they are the future of the sport and it passionate about helping them!
