Coach Gunnar has over 37 years of triathlon and endurance sports experience, completing his first triathlon back in 1985, at the Keauhou Kona Half. His love for triathlon grew from his early years surfing, paddleboarding and open water swimming, which also led him to become an California State Ocean Lifeguard.
