But Cat's accomplishments on the ocean don't just end there, even more important is Cat's dedication to keeping our ocean's clean for the next generation. Her work with the Surf Rider Foundation managing ocean and beach clean ups along the Florida Coast remove hundreds of pounds of trash and keep the waterways clean for all paddlers and more importantly the oceans creatures. Look out for the whole Uden family at your next Florida race, the whole family paddles and races and we are happy to have them as part of the BOGA Ohana. .
