Ethan is a Manufacturing Engineer who works on our marine programs. Like so many of our Rock West team, he enjoys outdoor activities of all types. While experienced in several ocean sports, Ethan is relatively new to diving and has jumped into the action with the focus and passion of a new convert. He’s been instrumental in our composite fins’ manufacture and has enjoyed taking them out for real-life testing in San Diego’s coastal areas.
On a recent weekend trip to the mountains, Ethan went out to Big Bear Lake and decided to test our Rock West-designed, medium-flex, carbon fiber fin blade prototypes in a different environment. It just happened to be a little colder than expected that day with frozen precipitation on top of already cold temperatures. He said, “I thought the water would be 45°F but it was closer to 35°F. But in the cold and stillness of winter can come incredible clarity.”
