Burton Tasmanian agent was a competitive rower of note in Queensland before his weight of 150 kilos prevented him from participating in the sport he so passionately loves. The Burton EasyRider double was up to the job so for the first time Geoff was able to row with his son Jared (a promising schoolboy rowing for University Team under the coaching of Mark Mathis). How great that this boat design makes it possible for everyone to have a great rowing experience – from a lightwieght 12 year old to a 50 year old who thought his days of rowing were behind him . Geoff is well known in Tasmania for the many hours he puts in assisting school rowing programs and tells us he is so inspired he has lost 12 kilos! Good on you Geoff.
