Show Notes

In this episode of QuiverCast, we sit down with Craig Comen @craigcomen  @kayakmendocino, a kayak business owner, marine expert, and former pro surfer hailing from Mendocino, California. Craig's journey in the world of surfing began with his earliest memories at Point Dume in Malibu, evolving as he moved to the central coast of California during his teen years. A turning point came when he crossed paths with John and Dave Parmenter, reigniting his passion for surfing and leading to countless surf trips and contests up and down the California coast.

Craig's surfing journey took a professional turn, allowing him to travel globally, but a significant realization led him to join the PSAA, enabling him to surf across the US while maintaining various jobs with surf companies. Despite being accepted into UC Santa Cruz for marine biology, he faced a crucial decision between education and a job offer from Patagonia to bring the brand into the surf world. Opting for the latter, Craig enjoyed considerable success at Patagonia before deciding to embark on a new chapter in Mendocino, CA.

Today, Craig is the proud owner of Kayak Mendocino @kayakmendocino, offering guided kayak tours that provide enthusiasts with a unique opportunity to explore and appreciate the breathtaking Northern California coast. Join us as we delve into Craig's fascinating journey from pro surfer to marine expert and business owner, discovering the intersections of his passion for the ocean and the diverse experiences that have shaped his life.
Go Kayaking in Mendocino!
