Eddy Out With Benny Marr

One of the funniest guys we know and one of the world’s top paddlers, Benny Marr got his skills from surfing big water rivers…he loves big water. He can often be found naked in and around rivers driving his truck from river to river. He’s from the Sister-Land of Canada and we are proud that Benny chooses to wear Astral. His favorite shoe is the TR1 Junction, great for kicking his BFF (Rush Sturges) in the pants on a regular basis. No contact info for Benny, he’s out to lunch.
