The world-famous Smackdaddy is available to share his fascinating views on big sailing at your major function. Whether a Safety at Sea Seminar, a Major Boat Show, a Fortune 100 Corporate Team-Building Event, a Bat Mitzvah, or even a Quinceañera, Smack can bring the heat.

His patented “You don’t really need to know anything, just pretend you do and GO FOR IT!” philosophy has motivated countless thousands to blithely get in way over their heads. It can work for you and your organization too!

His fee is only USD$35,000 per 1-hour speaking engagement (with accompanying list of “Outrageous Diva Demands” in the Contract – such as white chocolate Snickers, diesel-scented candles in the dressing room, and BFS Skullies for the valets and ushers.)

Or, let one of the most trusted voices in outdoor adventure endorse your product! Sales will “skyrocket” when Smackdaddy lights the fuse! Great outdoorsmen such as Bear Grylls and CardiB learned everything they know from Smack. Only USD$125,000 per year (with a lot of ridiculous fine print if the harebrained scheme actually works).
