Easley, S.C. – Ultimately, Team Wave Sport is a state of mind. It's anyone whose passion for kayaking determines how they live their life. We're proud to say our team takes the passion, the excitement for the sport and the devotion to rivers to the next level. The “official” Team Wave Sport is an insanely talented group of athletes who are entirely dedicated to promoting the sport and protecting the playgrounds. It includes the core team members, team ambassadors and local athletes.

Chosen for their accomplishments and for their tireless pursuit of the next big adventure, next competition or just the next day on the river, the core team members have a collective resume of jaw-dropping achievements. More importantly, they're all darn good people. This year's team is: Bryan Kirk (also team manager), Tyler Curtis, Tanya Faux, Trip Jennings and Kelsey Thompson.

Wave Sport ambassadors for 2009 are: Todd Baker, Taylor Cavin, Taylor Cote, Logan Grayling, Kim Russell and Mariann Saether.
