Sales - Principal
Mike has been in the Action Sports Industry for over 20 years. Since the age of 4 Mike has been riding everything that rolls or slides. Family is placed as a high priority and the next Walker generation is hard at work keeping up with dad. Years of experience has helped Mike gain a perspective as a business partner more than a Sales Rep and never forgets that every customer he works with built their business out of a passion for the sports they love. If asked why he continues to build his career around the Action Sports Industry, he will always say that he would be hard pressed to find another career in which he could earn a living while doing business with those that share his passion.
A participant of the Action Sports Life prior to her Marriage to Mike 20 years ago, Joy has an exuberance for almost everything that involves the outdoors. An avid Cyclist and Skier, Joy enjoys her time with her family and is thankful for her move to join the RecWare team. Joy also spends part of her time as a Nutritional Coach. Joy’s contributions to RecWare over the years have been instrumental in its growth and success and she will be the first to say that she is not sure why she did not do this sooner.
Sales - Western Washington, Alaska
Nick brings a great mood with him wherever he goes. With an extensive background in graphic design he looks at every encounter as a creative opportunity. Being in the outdoors with his wife is where Nick feels most at home. With over 15 years of industry experience ranging from production to wholesale and an upbringing in Alaska Nick brings plenty of experience and stories of adventures to the conversations . When not running around to see all of his dealers he likes to be on his bike around town or in the woods. Once the Snow falls Nick can be found on the local hills on his Snowboard. As his picture suggests he tries to take things as they come and have fun with it.
Sales - Oregon, Eastern Washington, N. Idaho
Greg has been an active participant in action sports from the time he could walk. Whether it’s surf, snow or dirt he thoroughly enjoys himself outdoors accompanied by friends, family, four legged creatures and loved ones. With an extensive background in cycling, Greg has traveled all over the world and competed against the best. These experiences have continuously driven his love and passion for competition and sport. Greg has worked in bike shops and participated and coached in cycling programs all over the country since he was 14. Even though cycling has been his bread and butter since the early days, Greg has a deep love for snow. Particularly, getting waist deep in powder or keeping it weird in the terrain park. He and his side kick's Max and Moby (his four legged pals) are always excited to make their rounds to his dealers and share their love of outdoor recreation and the amazing products that make them possible!

Strongest wheels on the market.
Five years ago, a little Santa Cruz video on a bike website debunked every skeptic's fear about the long-term durability of carbon fiber bicycle frames.
Now we are doing the same for wheels. Santa Cruz Reserve wheels are built on the highest quality carbon rims on the market. Our confidence in the design and strength of our wheels is backed up by a lifetime warranty, just like our frames.
