Like many, Luke’s earliest memories of the water started with family trips to the coast, wake boarding behind the family ski boat, and family rafting trips on the Deschutes River. But it wasn’t until he ventured out on his own explorations did it become a true addiction!
At 18, he purchased his first kayak, a Sotar inflatable…beginning his own adventures here in the Pacific NW. With the Clackamas, Mollala, and Sandy Rivers close by, there was no lack of fun to be had on the water. Addiction turned to passion and passion turned into a occupation as Luke found himself taking positions with local outdoor retailers who focused on water sports.
After over 15 years working on sales, instruction, rentals, and events in the paddle sports industry, Luke moved into outside sales becoming a sales rep for Astral Designs, Neosport, Supreme Paddle Gear, Liquid Shredder, Hyperflex Wetsuits and more!
In 2015 Clackamas River Outfitters opened inside Timber Park and CRO was born! Before opening CRO there were many more experiences that helped propel Luke’s career as a paddlesports guru and if you take a moment to read more you will see that choosing CRO for your next Kayak or Paddleboarrd excursion on the Clackamas River is the way to go.
