An Eagle Scout, a video production specialist, and a true adventurer at heart, both Holden and his banner are fantastic additions to our store.
Adventure Guide, Alex Dupre lives for the water. We rely on his extensive experience on surfboards and wakeboards to build the safest and most exciting adventures on the Tennessee River. Before joining our team, Alex tested his skills as a leader and instructor in the U.S. Army. As it turns out, if you can teach people to rappel out of helicopters, you can teach them to drive Swincar e-Spiders and ride e-foil surfboards! When he isn’t working, you would be hard pressed to find Alex anywhere, as he has probably found a quiet spot to fish…”
