Not positive but I think it was Mike Karpell. He lives down in Durango, and used to be connected with Southwest Whitewater. It might have also been Ron Rupert, but I think he came later, and is still currently. A third possibility was Nate Seeby, but I think he quit before then.
To be honest there wasn't much of a rep then. I was paddling for them at the time and had to go directly through the factory. In early 2002 I applied for a rep job.
Hope that helps a little.
