Breck is a competitive open-water swimmer and competes in the annual Alcatraz swim. His wife Susie was a former competitive mogul ski racer. Breck and Susie are raising their children (Annika and Ridge) to be active outdoor enthusiasts while instilling in them the values of respect for the environment and other people.
