Chase grew up a dedicated basketball player, competing at a collegiate level before he retired for a life on the water. Kiteboarding became his first water sport in 2006 and eventually lead him into stand up paddle boarding. Chase started his stand up paddle business, Water Monkey, soon after he graduated from the University of South Florida.

The first stand up paddle event that he raced in was one that he also helped to organize in the fall of 2009.  The challenge of participating in a new sport was exiting. Chase has competed in more than 80 stand up paddle events and organized 15 since 2009. His position as a SUP race organizer, coach and competitor gives him a unique perspective on the competition side of stand up paddle boarding. Chase’s passion for stand up paddle boarding gave him the motivation to help create the Stand Up Paddle Athletes Association.
