Wanting to wait for the importance of the Holiday weekend to pass and all to be attentive, we are proud to make the anticipated announcement that Haley Mills will be joining the Werner Paddles whitewater Team for 2013. This is equally exciting as she is now one our Team that is multi-sport. She competed in multiple SUP river events and races using our paddles starting last year.
She is the second of the high profile paddler we alluded to late last week on Werner Paddles Facebook. Haley makes her debut alongside new Teammate Rush Sturges. Multi talented in both SUP and creek boat kayaking, we are really excited to have her representing us with the 2013 whitewater rodeo "Worlds" back on US soil this fall at NOC. Haley will be a strong candidate to make the US Team and compete for the podium.
Below is a short bio, you can follow her full time at haleyemills.blogspot.com
