Instructor Ambassador Second Best Bellyaker in the World
Callan is the second best Bellyaker in the world, and was Adam’s inspiration for evolving the design. In the early phases of bellyak, when the boats were all foam and fiberglass, Callan was right there helping the sport evolve on Section 9 of the French Broad in Madison County. Callan lives in Marshall with his wife Allison and Daughter Lily, and runs his acupuncture practice in downtown Marshall. You can check him out at www.marshallacupuncture.com.
“I started bellyaking about 5 years ago and haven’t looked back. I used to kayak and raft but nothing is as exciting and fun as the bellyak. I love the powerful connection with the water and the flexibility with the craft. You can paddle face down, or sit on your butt or knees. Surfing is absolutely my favorite thing to do on the bellyak. There are so many moves and ways to surf that it becomes and endless adventure. I can’t wait to teach my daughter when she gets old enough, she’s gonna love it.”
