As a kid, brock was always on the move and always outside there wasn’t a sport that he didn’t do when he was younger. It wasn’t until college that he really focused on sailing. Going to Old Dominion University and working with coach Mitch Brindley was definitely a point when he realized what was actually possible in sailing – and from then on, sailing has been his life.
On Ocean and Sailing Passion...
I am immensely thankful for the time I was given on the ocean at a young age and to have been taught to respect all of its power and beauty is something that stays with me in everything I do. I think that early education also taught me to interact with the ocean in as many ways as possible whether it be kitesurfing, foiling, TP52s or super-yachts, it is all time on the water and it all teaches something about the ocean and about ourselves. The more aspects of our sport I am involved in, the more amazing people I meet, the more I want to work to protect the ocean I love.
Within my world of professional sailor, ocean guide and kiteboarder, I have a long-standing collaboration with The Rozalia Project and their missions. I also collaborate with Sail Martha’s Vineyard, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and perpetuating the Island’s maritime heritage and culture. I am extremely proud of the fact that I have been able to connect Sail MV with 11th Hour Racing and Schmidt Ocean Institute to work on initiating and instituting Locally sourced, Zero Waste Events as well educating children all over the world.
