Short Bio: Claire Melton, 14, says she has been playing in the outdoors before she could even walk.
“My dad would carry me on backpacking trips,” she said.
She’s been biking since she was 4, skiing since she was 8, kayaking since she was 9, and starting surfing when she was 12.
Recently, her main focus has been kayaking — a sport that she competes in regularly and hopes will one day land her spot in the Olympics.
Claire uses the Polar Bottle 24oz Starburst Sport Water Bottle and 20oz April Showers Sport Water Bottle to stay hydrated when she kayaks.
