Braden Wilson calls the mountain town of Steamboat Springs home. His love for rivers and all things water were cultivated as a child on river trips on the Rio Grande through the Taos Box in northern New Mexico. Braden went on to become a rafting guide and kayak safety boater working in New Mexico, Colorado and Costa Rica. Standup paddleboarding has reignited his love for being on the water and he is passionate about sharing this love with others, especially his daughter, Isabel. When not on local waterways, Braden teaches Spanish at Steamboat Springs Middle School and leads student groups to Central America and the Caribbean to work on community development projects in underserved communities.
