Thanks to Rusty and Treesa for setting up the blog.
So the next Worlds are probably just over 12 months away. The West Coast Team is bursting with talent with current and former world champions in our ranks. We live on one of the best coastlines for surf kayaking in the world. If we can just get our organisation to match our potential we will be world champions in 2009. I don't know if this is appropriate but I am going to say it anyway. I am willing to take on the role of team coach if someone else (Morlee/Rick??) is willing to take on the role of team manager. I have no agenda other than to see us win and for the sport to grow. I care less what craft you use and what dry top you wear. It may be inappropriate for me as a kayak rep to be coach but that is for you, the team to decide. I am totally committed to the team and to the sport. I will organize training at various venues and actively recruit new talent to fill the areas in the team where I feel we are weak.
Let me know your thoughts.
