Connor Baxter, raised on the water in Maui, Hawaii, began competing in Windsurfing and Surfing events at the age of 8 years old.

Having already proved that he is a waters ports prodigy, at 16 he switched his focus to Stand-Up Paddle and immediately proved himself again after setting a world record at the Molokai-2-Oahu World Championships, 4 minutes ahead of the closest competitor.Since his initial successes, Connor has become a SUP household name as a Paddle World Champion, the Fastest Paddler on Earth, five-time SUP Athlete of the Year, five-time Male Paddler of the Year, Battle of the Paddle Champion, Pacific Paddle Games Champion and has more than 100 first place finishes.
