This has led him to many accomplishments in the industry and he has spread the joy of boating to thousands of people throughout his life. Through recreational boating to competitive slalom skiing, Brett has been involved in boating non-stop for the majority of his life. Brett began his passion for boating the old fashioned way, on a single wooden ski, more than 35 years ago. He's a California native with family dating back six generations. After excelling as a fierce competitor in the motocross circuit, he turned his focus to building a successful marine business in Ventura County, CA.
