Ambassadors

 

RESTOKE Ambassadors are thoroughly engaged, connected and committed. They are the voice of the RESTOKE brand and live the spirit of stoke. They represent the RESTOKE brand by inspiring YOU to RELIVE the stoke, SPREAD the feeling, and NEVER STOP! You know the feeling. Exhilaration. Uncertainty. You’re out of control. Then you’re not. Time slows down. The moment is everything. The rush. That hard-to-describe feeling that leaves you wanting more. Whether it’s catching your first wave—or 100th, carving up a mountain in deep fresh powder, killing it at the skate park, the stoke you feel is the energy you bring to your life…and the world.

If you got time, take a minute and get to know our ambassadors and find out what stokes them.

 



Greg Waddell

Greg, a native of the coastal town of Rockport Massachusetts, has a history of sailing and boating in his bloodline. As a young grom at 4 years old, Greg’s dad got him hitting the slopes; he was stoked. His early exposure to skiing in New England and a ski trip to Utah quickly turned this coastal boat rigger/sailors life into a seasonal adventure. During the winter months, Greg RESTOKEs carving lines on the Mountains in Steamboat Springs Colorado or chasing pow in the backcountry. He spends the summer months back on the east coast and takes every opportunity to RESTOKE on the ocean, tacking a mainsail around his native island. Greg’s lust for life, his attitude and passion for adventure keep the true spirit of stoke alive.

Jodi shares her passion for scuba diving with anyone who is in earshot, willing or not, to listen. Jodi volunteers and fundraises with the Shark Angels, an organization that raises awareness to the critical issues, change perspectives, and empower and equip advocates to act locally to save sharks.
