Devin Gates | Running for Vice President

Devin Gates, worst class 2 paddler in Missouri.

I was introduced to whitewater by Tim Pfiel in 2009 via Team River Runner.  I’ve swam rapids in 5 states and 4 countries and currently am trying to raise 2 young sons in the whitewater community.

I’ve recently made some career changes which will allow me more time to contribute to the organizations I enjoy and hope to take some weight off of the legends who have carried this group for years.

My goals if elected are to serve as an active Team River Runner member and liaison for veterans within the whitewater community, host youth paddling events to help grow the next generation, and to look as good in a dry suit as John Tansil.
