STEVE-O MCKONE

WASHINGTON DC / MARYLAND / VIRGINIA

I started off my journey to become a Paddleboarder as a shredder of ocean waves. I then found whitewater kayaking and stopped surfing, then I found SUPing and it combined two of my passions so it only made sense.

It was a SUPer easy transition. The moment I found standing river waves was an amazing moment, I will never forget my first Rocky Island surf
