Good Luck Tanner, or Never trust a man with a helmet on his head!

Hobie Sailor and Windsurfing Phenom turning to the Frozen Surface!

Tanner Shepard, emerging sailing and windsurfing superstar, trades in his Chopper for a goalie stick. (yes a new sail and goalie stick do cost the same!) Considered to be a top prospect in todays OHL draft, Tanner has already earned ice time defending the net against current OHL players. But what will the North Bay Battalion think when they find out his off-season past-time is not golf!

AWT Hatteras Wave Jam top 4 Pro Finisher & Amateur Champion,       Casey Treichler,  breathes a sigh of relief that he will keep his throne as the  King of the Reef.cropped-dsc_0067.jpg

Casey stated “We needed some way to get that kid of the water, now without Sasquatch there is room for the rest of the big dogs out there!”

Lake Erie Hobie Sailing and all around beach legend, the Big Lou-huna is relieved to hear that his spare parts locker will not be diminished this year by the young man know to many as TannerSaurus Wrecks.

Lou’s wife, Gidget, will graciously take care of Tanner’s Hobie 14 and promises not stick it third batten high-unless she is crewing for Tanners younger brother, Ben.



Today is the OHL draft, and one of our young Warriors is among the top goaltending prospects. If he is drafted and chooses to play in the OHL it will severely cut into his Reef time, and his enthusiasm for all the watersports he participates in will surely be missed.

Best of luck today Tanner, may your dreams come true.

  1. For those of you who are interested, Tanner was picked by his hometown team, the Hamilton Bulldogs in the 7th round of the OHL draft.
    Congrats and best of luck Tanner.
