Meet the Expert Team Behind Lake Powell Paddleboards and Kayaks

From all corners of the country we all came together with a love for the water. We are the ones that keep the wheels turning, or in this case the paddlers paddling. Each one of us are historians, (unlicensed) therapists, photographers, story telling specialists, comedians and most importantly passionate about our jobs. Sometimes we trade hats but we all have the same goal in mind; to get you outside. Our team spirit and expertise helps us create a memoriable experience with not only fun in mind but safety as our top priority.

Cinco & Rigs

Two Truths & a Lie:

  • Rigs is named after a character from the movie Lethal Weapon
  • We are both rescue pups
  • Rigs name was originally Max

Ruff! We are Cinco & Rigs – the official welcoming crew at LPP&K & pups on the logo. When hard at work you can find us begging customers for belly rubs, chasing rabbits in the boat yard or emotionally supporting the rest of our less furry team! We love getting everyone stoked for their adventures with our crew. Outside of working at the shop you can find Cinco being loaded up in a backpack for just about any adventure her humans will take her on. Rigs is still a little unsure of the world but is sure glad he has his brave big sister to show him how incredible it is to grow up on Lake Powell.

Two Truths & a Lie:

  • I’ve traveled to all 50 states
  • I’ve never had raw cookie dough
  • I hate when people sing

I’m Max. Proud owner & operator of LPP&K. Husband to Libby & dog dad to the best pups ever – Cinco & Rigs. Originally from Michigan I love all things water; kayaking, rafting, sailing, canoeing & paddle boarding. I’ve led & participated in numerous expeditions on & off the water. I am an ACA Level III Instructor, PSUPIA Instructor Trainer, Wilderness First Responder, EMT, Swift Water Rescue & Leave No Trace Instructor. I first came to Page in 2013 to help my father & his wife start LPP&K but left within a year to finish my degree in Environmental Science. Met the love of my life, Libby, & together we came back to Page for the opportunity to run & purchase LPP&K. If I’m not throwing around kayaks you can find me somewhere on a river.


Two Truths & a Lie:

  • My family drove everywhere when we traveled – we never flew
  • I rafted the Grand Canyon during two winter storms
  • My first concert was Jimmy Buffet

What’s (a) SUP? I’m Libby. Owner, wife to Max & mom to Cinco & Rigs. Being from the Great Lakes State of Michigan & my astrology sign being Cancer water is something I need to be close to. Max introduced me to sea kayaking when we first met & never could I have imagined that we would own a Kayak & SUP Outfitter together almost a decade later. While I’m an ACA Level I Instructor I spend more time in the office than on Lake Powell making sure everything is running smoothly. Having a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts I love using my creativity to create a welcoming environment to our store. If I’m not working hard, I’m being creative renovating my home or letting my pups live their best life exploring the Southwest.

Two Truths & a Lie:

  • I have lived in 13 states
  • I write upside-down & am ambidextrous
  • I used to be an esthetician


Hey, I’m Brit! I am the Store Manager & The SUP Program Coordinator for LPP&K – & also the resident SUP Yoga Instructor. I am PSUPA certified Flatwater I & II SUP Guide as well as trained in Wilderness First Aid. Originally from outside of Chicago, I moved here to Page at the start of 2017. I first set foot on a SUP in 2015 & was instantly addicted, so moving here I was stoked to find a place that encouraged me to grow my skills, knowledge & love of paddleboarding. I am fortunate enough to have been with the LPP&K family since the 2020 season. Aside from getting out on my board, I really enjoy cooking. I’m obsessed with stand up comedy. I love to get out & hike (barefoot whenever possible) with my guy & our two sweet pups. We love taking our little vintage camper out to the woods whenever we get the chance!


Two Truths & a Lie:

  • I used to live in Phoenix
  • I’ve jumped off a 60ft cliff
  • I’ve been to New York City

Yá’át’ééh (Hello in Navajo), my name is Sky. I am a Navajo Kayak Tour Guide for LPP&K. This is my second season with the company & hopefully longer! I was born & raised in Page, AZ. I really enjoy hiking & kayaking on Lake Powell because I grew up camping, fishing & swimming with my family. I have two beautiful dogs, whose names are Finn & Leia. I love being a Tour Guide & getting to welcome people from all over the world into our beautiful land. If you don’t see me out on a tour, you’ll probably see me paddleboarding with my two dogs or cheering on the Seahhawks!

Two Truths & a Lie:

  • Moving here was my first visit to Lake Powell
  • I used to show horses
  • I am a quiet introvert


Greetings earthlings, I’m Kenna! I am WFR certified (wilderness first responder) Guide for our incredible kayak excursions out here on Lake Powell. I moved here from Colorado to work & play with LPP&K, but was born & raised in West Michigan. Growing up, the Great Lakes consumed my life so when I fell in love with outdoor recreation, Lake Powell was the obvious place for me to put down some roots & continue to fervently pursue my passions. When I am not on the lake you can find me rock climbing, snowboarding or just generally chasing a little adrenaline. I am always so stoked to get to show folks the little corner of Earth I get to call home here in Page, America.


Two Truths & a Lie:

  • I am an only child
  • I can’t swim
  • I started my first business at 15


Hey folks, Austin here! I am one of the boat captains for LPP&K as well as a tour guide – you may even see me on the ramp over at rentals occasionally too! I am an ACA-certified Flatwater I + II level Kayak Guide & Coast Guard Certified Boat Captain. I began with LPP&K in the 2022 season & I have been kayaking for about 10 years now. I was previously a real estate agent in Houston, TX where I am originally from. I grew up hunting & fishing & continue to do both as much as I can. I also love to golf, snowboard & wakeboard. When I’m not on the water you may find me cruising around town or out in the desert on my 1970 Kawasaki Trail Boss, or maybe taking off on an adventure to explore more of this wild area!

Two Truths & a Lie:

  • Got tubed while kayaking in an 8ft surf
  • Suspected drug lord
  • Pissed up the nose of a bear

Dana lives & breathes Page/Lake Powell. His passion for the water brought him to us, eager to guide. Within a year of joining our team he retired from his career at the local hardware store to work with us full time. Dana has lived many lives but his home is on the water. Some refer to him as the Keith Richards of kayaking. The only time you won’t catch Dana on a tour is at church or taking his wife out for date night!


Two Truths & a Lie:

  • I can’t ride a bike
  • I’ve bungee jumped off a bridge
  • I have a degree that I’ve never used


Hi, I’m Hannah from Indiana! My husband & I are new to Page, but not new to adventure. I love learning new skills & doing “weird” jobs, which is why I’ve worked on cruise ships, at Disney World, for a Big Foot museum, in Grand Teton National Park and in Peru as a teacher. You’ll find me at the front desk &/or on your tour! I spend my free time hiking, teaching color guard & doing craft projects. Catch me at the thrift store after work!

Two Truths & a Lie:

  • I’m a professional painter
  • I love my wife
  • I’m 5 feet tall


My name is Coty & I’m a country boy from Ohio. My wife, Hannah, & I just moved to town. You’ll usually see me over at rentals, probably wearing overalls & cowboy boots. I spend most of my time in the summer building bonfires, grilling & camping – I also refuse to leave the house if it’s cold out!
