Where did the idea for VWC first come from, and what made you think it could work?
The idea started in college. Being in Valdosta made it hard to get a lot of riding in, since there aren't any big lakes. My friends and I were always talking about ideas and "what if's" at that time because the struggle to get on the
water was so real. Eventually, my roommate, Luke, and I wrote all of those things down because we felt like, in the off-chance that the opportunity to make any of them happen should arise, then at least we would be somewhat prepared. Those ideas later became structured into our business plan that we presented to investors and banks.
