The search is over. Jordan Byrum was recently added to the Shred Ready team. Jordan will be paddling in good company. The team’s lineup includes all-stars Chris Korbulic, Pat Keller, Chris Gragtmans, Elaine Campbell, and Isaac Levinson.
Jordan secured his position on the Shred Ready team by submitting the winning video in Shred Ready’s 2011 talent search video contest. J.B. says he’s “so thankful to everyone who helped make it possible” Spoken like a true winner. “I’m stoked to see what the future holds with Shred Ready and I hope to keeping going bigger and stomping more stouts.” At the age of 18 we can all look forward to watching Jordan huck his meat for years to come.
Shred Ready put on the talent contest to promote motivated young paddlers to show what they were capable of both on the water and in the industry. Numerous talented and motivated paddlers submitted video and J.B. raised eyebrows. “I was blown away by the talented and technically savvy young people courageous enough to submit for the world to decide if they should be on the 2012 Team” said Tom Sherburne, President at Shred Ready.
Shred Ready attributes their success largely to their strong boater-representatives. “Since our humble beginnings in a spare bedroom and garage Shred Ready’s success has been tied to the Athletes who represent us around the world” said Sherburne. Its certain that the decision to include Jordan to the Shred Ready Team was an important one.
Shred Ready continues to provide boaters like Jordan the safety gear needed to feel confident charging creeks, ripping waves or hucking meat. Jordan is just one more addition to an all-star group of paddlers who continue to push the sport of kayaking.
