Who are the Awkward Watersport Guys, you ask? This dynamic duo is made up of two watersport industry professionals who operate out of beautiful Destin, Florida, a premier beach destination known for its wonderful water activities, whimsical wildlife, and having tons of unforgettable things to do!

With over 15 years in the travel and hospitality industry, Greg is truly an entrepreneur, who knows the complexities of how to create a successful business. And, as an Emerald Coast local, he really knows his stuff when it comes to watersports!

Watersport Safety & Insurance
Family bonding while parasailing over beautiful Orange Beach, AL
Watersport safety, as well as insurance, is a hot topic of conversation in the industry, especially when it comes to extreme activities like parasailing and jet skiing. Not only do providers need to make safety a priority for insurance purposes, but also for the welfare of their customers. Companies who put safety first give their customers peace of mind, which, in return, can boost sales and profit, and the AWG podcast explains how to do so!
Even further, when it comes to watersports along the Emerald Coast, there’s probably nothing more popular than a Panama City Beach, Florida, pontoon rental!
