Personal Weekly Training

With my Personal Weekly Training program you’ll learn with me or my patient expert instructors on the basics, intermediate or advanced skills in kayaking, sup or surf ski.

In three 3 hour customized lessons,  I’ll work with you to meet your goals by creating a personalized training program.

Your program will help you build new skills and achieve your next level whether you want to paddle casually, surf, race, downwind or tour Puget Sound or beyond.

Lessons options may include learning how to kayak or paddle board. Or a week of Deception Pass training or learning how to surf your kayak, sup or surf ski.

Equipment Included – 

All equipment is included with class cost but I recommend using your own gear to learn how to use it better.

After your week, I’ll follow up with a summary of skills learned, paddling resources we use as well as suggestions for going forward. You’re welcome to add additional weeks to your program.

“I took the several lessons and it is a positive life changing experience, the knowledge of the instructors is both deep and wide, they are resourceful, patient, and not only great watermen professionals but also great teachers and guides. Taking a lesson with them is a must, without regard of your level. You will get also nice pics to show off..”

“I took the SUP Basics 2 Course after corresponding with Rob Casey about my goals and experience with SUP. Having all of this amazing water to explore in my back yard, it is important to me that I do it safely. I rode home after the session- even more excited bout this sport than before. I was amazed how much we covered in our first session and I can’t wait to continue to take more lessons and classes from Salmon Bay Paddle. I drove home with a deep appreciation of the work that I need to l operate safely out on the water and a clear picture of what I need to do to get to my goals thanks to the recourses, experience gained in the session and his patient instruction. The class not only was informative but challenge me as well”

“I took a 3 hour one-on-one novice surf ski lesson with Rob and had a really great experience. Rob is hugely knowledgeable and also very patient with newcomers. I went in hoping to get the early tips that everyone wishes they had at the start of a new sport and Rob’s lesson was spot on – stability tips, paddling technique, boat handling, boating conventions and etiquette, safety and gear info etc. My basic paddling in chop was going well so Rob also helped me make a start on wake riding and the concepts for down-winding. Once I get some more experience I’ll be back for more. Thanks Rob!”

“Great experience! I was a little hesitant to do one on one coaching with Rob due to the cost difference in the group sessions (which I would still like to do, particularly around Deception Pass) but there really is no substitute for the amount of attention & coaching you get in a one on one class. I did a downwind and just kind of “all around” SUP class with Rob in the Puget Sound and I had so much fun. I learned a bunch of new techniques and he improved on what I thought I already knew. He has an alumni FB group for his students and said I can hit him at any time for more advice.Great value for money, I would do that class again in a heartbeat. Thanks Rob!!”
