Paddle Board Classes

Stand up paddling or SUP is the ultimate activity for providing a great workout while enjoying our extensive waterways both on Puget Sound and the outer coast.

I’ve been stand up paddling since 2006 and wrote the first SUP book “Stand Up Paddling Flat Water to Surf and Rivers” by Mountaineers Books.

My personalized private 1-1 and 2 person SUP lessons are for total beginners through advanced paddlers seeking coaching for racing, surfing, tidal rapids and more.

My patient PSUPA certified coaches and I are known for sharing our passion of paddling with students while maintaining a strong focus on safety and fun.
