Brad Martin is the owner/operator and boat builder at TOM - The Outrigger Man. Brad began Outrigging almost 20 years ago at Panamuna Outrigger Canoe Club based at Shorncliffe, later moving to Mooloolaba. Given his love of the ocean, it's fair to say he fell in love with the sport instantly. Before long Brad became President of the Club and held that position for 16 years, later being inducted as a Life Member at Panamuna.
During this time Brad was also SQ Zone Vice President for 2 years.
Brad has a fantastic reputation within the outrigging community and is still as passionate about the sport today as he was the day he started. Brad has a wealth of knowledge and expertise when it comes to the canoes and their craft. He was the recommended canoe maker and co-ordinator for the World long distance Championships in August 2019. You won't find anyone with more experience and knowledge when it comes to the making or repairing of your water craft than Brad.
In his spare time, you will find Brad at the beach, walking his dog Boston and spending time with his family.
