We would like to announce Cory Hill as the first member of our inaugural Shaw and Partners Race Team, partnering with OceanPaddler, Fenn, Vaikobi, Maui Jim Sunglasses and Bennett Surfboards
Cory originated from a Surf Life Saving background where he found success as a professional Ironman before discovering his talent, passion and love for the sport of Ocean Paddling. He has since etched his name into the Surf Ski history books as one of the most successful and decorated athletes.
Cory is the current Ocean Ski World Champion and the only paddler in the sport to ever win consecutive world titles.
We are honoured and excited to have Cory on the Shaw and Partners Race Team.
