Wanna learn SUP in Seattle? Give me a holler..

I teach stand up paddling (SUP) in Seattle and the Pacific NW. My SUP Basics and Beyond class covers not only standing up, but several easy ways to turn your board, be more stable in bumpy water, and learn about boating safety, etc. I can also help intermediate paddlers learn new skills such as the pivot turn, cross bow paddling, and surfing.

I can help you choose boards and paddles to purchase and consult with businesses in setting up SUP programs. For more info, check out my site,
