Clint Bandy

Founder / Chief Operations Officer

I grew up in a small town in the middle of nowhere Texas, spending almost all of my time as a child outside and on adventures. My favorite was going with friends to the lake on their boats. I remember being on the open water and feeling like it was an ocean of endless waves. There was a sense of freedom every time we set sail, where my imagination could run wild with all of the possibilities in such a big world… It’s hard to think about the trajectory of my life without those experiences, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
