Truli Inspired: Kristin SUP and Surfer girl in California in her Truli-Mi

Posted by Mia Toose on

I met Kristin in September 2017 while we were both exhibiting at The Butterfly Effect in Lake Tahoe, California.  Kristin, a pro SUP racer and surfer, came over to try a Truli and fell in love!  She was exactly the person I was looking to connect with so I could learn more about the surf and SUP wetsuit needs of a typical California woman!  Later in my trip, Kristin was kind enough to meet up with me in her hometown of Laguna Beach to go for a gorgeous SUP paddle and snorkel among the kelp forests.   Job Title: Independent Sales Rep/...
