A Change of Pace- Chaco Ambassador Mike Tavares in December

December was a unique and different time of year for an athlete such as me. After wrapping up a long year of competing and travelling, I settle in at our Christmas tree lot in Chattanooga TN.  It is so different from our "normal" everyday life that it takes a little getting used to.  



The past few weeks have been spent training and getting ready for the upcoming season on the Road. With the Boardworks Demo Tour in full swing, it has been great to meet lots of new people, introduce people to the sport of Stand Up Paddling, and share my passion for the sport.  I’ve been paddling both SUP’s and Kayak’s lately, but have been getting a lot of attention while paddling whitewater on our Stand Up Boards.  The other thing getting the attention of paddlers and on-lookers alike, is our new footwear from Chaco.  


What's a Chaconian?

You are Chaco!

Chaconians are our pride and joy! They pound pavement, trails, and waves. They teach, reach, and perform. They're people who trust their Chacos, and we're honored to support them.
