Michael Booth is an Australian Waterman that has excelled at everything he has touched in the past ten years. From his beginnings in Surf Life Saving, Surfski and Kayak, he then dedicated himself to SUP in 2016. He has since become a multiple Australian, Euro Tour and World Champion. As a kid Michael wanted to be able to do what he loved and make a living… he is now doing just that.

Michael prides himself on the quality and consistency of his performance and believes that success can only be achieved through hard work, self-belief and dedication – words which he continues to live by during the off season and the racing season.

There is no doubt that Michael is both physically and mentally strong, pursuing some huge personal goals to be the best in the sport as well as encouraging others to reach their goals. Booth launched his own coaching business, which he offers all over the world as well as tailored and personalised online programs, sharing his knowledge and skills in SUP racing.

He is constantly seeking his next challenge and strives to be the best at everything he puts his mind to. He intends 2019 to be no different and is excited by another year of racing and travelling.
