About the speaker

In 2011 he won his 1st World Flowrider Championship repeating this again in 2014 and 2015 retiring from the sport in 2016 with an epic 2nd place in the world championships in Abu Dhabi.
Clayton is currently the operations manager of the Laguna Waterpark where his mandate is to oversee growth. Water is his passion and creative ways of selling this medium is his latest adventure.
