I’m Adam Kreek. In my current life, I work as a management consultant. In my past life, I was an Olympian and won an Olympic gold medal in rowing. I also rowed a rowboat across the Atlantic ocean.
Now I’ve got a mortgage, three kids, a minivan and the usual responsibilities that go with family life.
What I love about the Oar Board® Rower and inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) is that it makes rowing more accessible.
I can take the Oar Board® out and I can throw a couple kids on top, wearing lifejackets of course. My oldest is just getting old enough now that I can send him out on one of these alone and he has a ton of fun on it.
As I said, I really like the Oar Board® Rower and inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) combo because it’s an accessible form of rowing. It’s affordable and it’s a great way to get people engaged and out rowing on the weekend. It’s the ultimate sports combination for the weekend adventurer. You can strap a tent on it, strap a case of beer on it… who can go wrong!
