Paul has over twenty years of experience working in business strategy and new business/ project development in a variety of industries and markets around the world.

Paul has a strong connection to the Ocean having had strong involvement with Surf Life Saving in Australia, SUP, Surfski and O.C. racing in various levels using his strong physique to great effect.
Vaikobi’s Pat Langley commented "We are extremely pleased to have Paul join us as we build our business in Canada and North America in the longer term. His business experience will be invaluable to our team and his passion for the Ocean is contagious! Canada has such a strong paddle sport heritage and we are looking forward to having a stronger presence in this region so that more Canadians can get to experience the Vaikobi difference"
