Born and raised on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, Travis Grant has spent most his life on the ocean. He started off as a junior life guard (nippers) at the age of five, followed by swimming, paddle boarding, surfing and surf ski. He eventually grew a strong liking for Outrigger Canoe paddling. Outrigger allowed and encouraged Travis to travel to beautiful destinations including Tahiti and Hawaii. His love for the ocean only continued to grow.
As the SUP race scene emerged, Travis immediately took an interest to the sport. He placed 2nd at the Battle of the Paddle – Hawaii; his first major race.
In his short SUP career, Travis feels very fortunate to win some of the world’s biggest SUP events. Molokai, Battle of the Paddle and the ISA World Championship are a few titles Travis has already accomplished.
