Moscow, Id â€“ NRS has added to its lineup of top athletes by joining forces with Nikki Gregg. One of the world's most high-profile and hardest working female standup paddlers, Gregg will represent the NRS lineup of paddling apparel and accessories to the SUP market.
â€œNikki's a versatile paddler who spans all aspects of standup, from surf to fitness to river running. She'll be a great addition to Team NRS,â€ says Mark Deming, NRS Marketing & Communications. â€œShe also fits the mold of what we look for in an ambassador, which means that she's an awesome person in addition to being an elite athlete.â€
Along with being named among the top five female standup paddlers of 2012 by SUP Magazine, Gregg has been called the â€œqueen of SUP Fitnessâ€ and â€œstandup paddle's spokeswoman.â€ A certified stand up paddle master instructor, she travels year-round from her Hood River, Oregon home to teach clinics, compete, create media and just have fun.
"I feel like I've just been adopted into an amazing family,â€ says Gregg.â€The people behind the NRS brand are truly supportive and I couldn't be happier. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to work with NRS to help design technical wear for SUP, from surf to river, and I am truly humbled to be among such a talented group of athletes."
