Beyond Coastal, manufacturer of premium sun care products for the outdoor lifestyle, has hit the road this spring and summer with its sponsored athlete and rising paddling star, 24 year old Haley Mills. A part time Salida, Colo.-resident, Mills' home has been mobile this season as she covered the distance between events aboard her trusty RV, a rolling paddler's paradise containing gear, boats, apparel, and sunscreen. Attendees of the August 4th-7th Outdoor Retailer Summer Market can visit with Mills in Beyond Coastal and Chums booth, #25019.

“The freedom I get from traveling in the RV is symbolic for why I pursue the sport of whitewater kayaking,” Mills said. “Cruising in the RV at 50 miles per hour is how I get to see the world and I love the accessibility it gives me to meet people who are passionate about paddling and the outdoors.”

Mills recently wrapped up a long stretch of travel and competing with the World Championships in Germany, taking fifth in the Freestyle Kayaking competition and solidifying her place as one of the U.S.' top performing kayakers. Her 2011 season results include:

• Alabama Mountain Games: 2nd Women's Freestyle, 4th OC1
• Connecticut Triple Crown: 2nd Women's Freestyle, 4th overall
• Nantahala Outdoor Shoot out: 2nd Women's Freestyle
• Reno River Fest: 4th Women's Freestyle, 5th Slalom
• Green River Fest: 4th Women's Freestyle
• Buena Vista Pro Rodeo: 3rd Women's Freestyle
• Teva Mountain Games: 3rd Women's Freestyle, 7th Downriver sprint
• World's Freestyle Kayaking Competition: 5th Women's Freestyle

Mills has been an instrumental ambassador for Beyond Coastal as she's logged countless hours this summer product testing Beyond Coastal's “Facestick.” Formulated for high exposure areas, with clear broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, Facestick provides protection between athletes and the elements.

With Vitamin E and Shea Butter, the antioxidant-rich Facestick Protects, Nourishes, Repairs and Hydrates overworked skin. Paddlers and “gloved” athletes love its “no-touch” application; just pull off the top and apply. The Facestick's .5 ounce container stows perfectly in a PFD or dry suit pocket.

As a National Freestyle Kayaking Team member, Mills primarily competes in whitewater kayak competitions but she's also emerging as a force in women's stand up paddling events. 2010 was a breakout year for her as she notched results at FIBark, the Lyons Outdoor Games, and the Teva Mountain Games. Mills' best result was in North Carolina, where she took 1st Place in women's freestyle at the NOC Shootout.
