Tire Diver uses his Tahoe SUP and Human Power to Pull Junk out of Lake Tahoe

 In Media News, SUP Lifestyle

Tom Carter has been pulling tires out of Lake Tahoe for the past 2 summers.  What started with one tire the beginning of last summer turned into a dozen tires by August. He has now hit 50 total and has no plans of stopping.  Carter has been using a couple of his Tahoe SUP standup paddle boards to locate and then extricate the tires.   Completely  under human power, Carter paddles out on recon missions, spots the next treasure and maps it mentally with landmarks on the shore.  Recently, a local Tahoe TV news program,  KTVN channel 2, caught wind of what the 61 yr old North Lake Tahoe resident was up to and shot this segment for their “Someone 2 Know” segment with Kristen Remingtion.

Many thanks Tom Carter, for doing beyond your part in Keeping Tahoe Blue!

There is also a more scenic and whimsical segment, done by Steve Speedy Media here.
