Emmanuel specializes in offshore fishing from a PWC! He targets species such as wahoo, tuna, mahi, and sailfish. Even bottom-dwelling species like yellow edge groupers and golden tilefish. Emmanuel's fishing style is unconventional, like deep dropping with an electric reel in 1000+ feet of water or planer fishing all on a pwc, but that's what makes it so special.

She is most at home wherever there is an adventure on the horizon.

Hi my name is Trevor Kennison. I was born and raised in Keene, NH. I currently live in Winter Park, CO which I have called home for 10 years! I had an accident in 2014 snowboarding. I suffered a spinal cord injury and have been wheelchair bound ever since. I am now a professional sit skier. Since having my spinal cord injury, it is very tough to find a boot that I can actually fit my foot into and it's warm and protects my feet so thank you XTRATUF for saving my feet!
