Jeff DenholmSanta Cruz, CA, United States
Jeff is as tough as they come. Born and raised on the southern coast of Maine, he lost his dominant arm in an accident on an Alaskan fishing trawler in the mid 90’s. Undeterred and with the use self-designed prosthetics Jeff continues to charge full speed ahead and is recognized as an all around world-class waterman.
Some of his waterborne exploits include serving as a Patagonia Surf Ambassador, competing on the Big Wave World Tour, three solo finishes of the Molokai to Oahu Paddleboard World Championships and working as a commercial diver on some of the most notorious undersea discoveries around the globe.
When he isn’t in, on or under the water Jeff can be found at the helm of his company Atira Systems working hard to rid the planet of the toxic flame-retardants being dumped on our forests. Atira Systems has been a proud member of 1% for the Planet since 2011.
