A lifelong waterman and athlete, Mike brings a wealth of experience to the water. Mike's ability to judge water conditions, wind and currents, combined with phenomenal endurance make him a force to be reckoned with. Mike's first race will be in Austin, TX September 15, 2012. The Waterman's Paddle For Humanity series is a World Paddle Association (WPA) event and has raised over $50,000 this year for charitable organizations.
"Coreban is excited to add Mike Hiltabidle as the latest National team rider. It comes at an opportune time where Mike's skill and abilities can be paired with the engineering marvel of Coreban's latest release, the Turbo. We look forward to a great relationship with Mike and sharing the stoke of SUP with the many people that will grow to know his name in the industry." –Ryan Duabch- Coreban SUP USA

About Paddle For Humanity:
The Waterman’s Applied Science Paddle for Humanity started as grass roots paddling event back in 2009 as a way to bring the paddling community together in support of a common cause. Since that time the race has grown to become the largest national paddling series and has raised thousands of dollars for its non- profit partners. For 2012, the Paddle for Humanity is expanding to five events, including Dana Point, Deerfield Beach FL, Washington DC , Lake Tahoe CA and Austin Texas .
Community has always been the keystone of the PFH and the success of the series can be measured by the ability to bring the paddling community together to raise awareness and funds for causes we believe in. First and foremost, the PFH is a fundraiser. We invite you to get involved as a company and as a global citizen to make a difference in the world and help in supporting this event series. http://www.paddleforhumanity.org/
