About the Presenter – John Foster:

“I’ve been paddling regularly since I first moved aboard a leaky houseboat on Lake Union and would paddle to classes while attending University of Washington. I’ve built a number of wooden stitch-and-glue boats, SUPs, and kayaks.

I am a PSUPA-certified instructor and have paddled, toured and SUP camped extensively around Puget Sound. I’ve been teaching Maritime Studies for the past 22 years at the Ballard Maritime Academy in Seattle. I teach the Washington State Safe Boater Certification and Coast Guard OUPV/100 ton license course which includes charting, marine navigation, and maritime rules of the road.

I have led student groups sailing aboard the Schooner Zodiac, cruising aboard the Mosquito fleet steamship Virginia V and on maritime/marine science trips to Maui. I’ve recently begun leading the Ballard Sea Squad with Salmon Bay Paddle, teaching high-school students to learn and grow their paddling skills.”
