Your Safety and Enjoyment is our Priority


“I've gone SUP on my own a few times but felt I might be lacking in some basics. I got a lesson from Rob and it exceeded my expectations by a long shot.

Not only does he give all the strokes you may need in various situations, I also learned about equipment, safety, tides and currents, how to transport and hold my board. Little things that made a huge difference because I'm prepared in every area. Now I can just concentrate on having fun when I hit the water."

- Sean F

"I learned not only how to improve my paddling skills but also how to read the water better, how to train more efficiently and most importantly not to forget to look up and enjoy being on the water.

If you are in the market for a lesson I would highly recommend Rob."

- Troy Nebecker, Bellevue

"Rob’s personalized instruction greatly improved my skills and gave me the confidence to become fully immersed in stand up paddling.

There are plenty of SUP classes out there, most with very large groups and not a lot of one-on-one time. Rob’s classes are small and customized to suit your specific needs and perfect for those who really want to learn the ins and outs of the Pacific NW’s perfect sport."

- Paul Edmonson, Seattle
