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 book called “Stand Up Paddling Flat Water to Surf and Rivers” from Mountaineers Books.

My personalized private 1-1 and 2 person lessons are for beginners starting out with no experience through advanced paddlers seeking advanced coaching for racing, surfing and more.

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

How We Work:

Contact me and we’ll develop a lesson or personal training plan tailored to your goals.

Salmon Bay is a mobile business with no shop and we meet you at the beach.

Gear is included in your lesson at no cost.  I provide follow up after each session to make sure you’re on the right direction forward.
