Sales Representative, West Coast and Canada
I bring a good deal of experience to the board from a diverse background both within and outside of the wind/watersports industry. I was raised on the east coast where I spent summers teaching sailing and windsurfing as a teenager. Obviously, the natural progression was from there to landscape architecture and on to finance in New York City, where I spent 7 years working as an options specialist. Throughout my time on Wall Street I was always drawn to the water, using most vacation days in Hatteras or the Caribbean. I wisely invested the money I saved working finance in an old sailboat, on which I sailed to California to work with my brother and his business partner when they opened a kiteboarding shop in San Diego. Once there I helped as a shop manager, a kite instructor, and I oversaw the development of a sail repair loft. It was also my project to branch the shop into SUP, for which I managed both sales and a school/rental program.

Kite Sales & Service
Pacific Boardsports, LLC
My name is Mike Duhaime and I am 29 years old. I grew up and spent most of my life in Orlando, FL. In Florida I really got into wakeboarding, skateboarding and surfing until I learned how to kite in 2007. I was a kite instructor for about a year and eventually it lead me to the Gorge to work at a ski resort and attempt to break in to the kiteboarding industry. I was able to get a position with Naish Kiteboarding packing boxes and helping out with anything possible kite related. Almost 4 years later I am now the kiteboarding sales manager for North America and I love my job. I really enjoy the Hood River, and the people and activities that come along with it. I participate on the board of directors for the Columbia Gorge Kiteboarding Association and have a passion for Kiteboarding, SUP, and all other boardsports. I think being involved with the ASWI would be a great chance to create more relationships in the industry while supporting a great organization that advocates the advancement of the sports I love.
Maintaining a balance between inventory investment and profit can be challenging. If you stock too much inventory, your profits can dip. Too little and you might miss a sale. Ideally you maintain a smaller inventory but have a more frequent delivery schedule. This is where FedEx and the AWSI Freight Savings Plan can help.
FedEx offers day-definite shipping with FedEx Ground, backed by a money-back guarantee.* If the package is not delivered on the standard scheduled delivery day, you can request a refund or credit of your shipping charges. FedEx Ground service maps make it easy to plan inbound shipments so that you can stock only the amount of goods you require and plan delivery to suit your needs.
As an AWSI member, you can save up to 25% on select inbound FedEx Ground® shipments. Just sign up for the AWSI Freight Savings Plan. Enrollment is free, quick and easy. If you have questions or need help routing your inbound shipments, call Siriani at 1.800.554.0005.
