The Key to Successful Barefooting: The Support Team

Having a support team in place is the key to being a successful barefooter.  For me,  a good team includes family, friends, and  the coaches at the World Barefoot Center.
The biggest contributor to my support team is my friend and father figure, Terry Spengler.  I met the Spengler family at a Mad Dog barefoot tournament in Indiana, where he brought his son, Cory, to ski his first tournament twenty years ago.  Next thing I knew, I discovered he only lived in the next town over from my home town.  Terry, Cory Spengler, and I started training together on the Kaskaskia River for upcoming tournaments the following year. He has always been a
great trainer and motivator for his son and I too ski.  He prepares the boat, packs the cooler, and pulls me up and down the lake.  He gives me the needed feedback to continue to grow in the sport.  His dedication  goes above and beyond anything I would ever expect from a friend.
