Tim Niemier, founder of Ocean Kayaks, has a remote cabin on the west side of Vancouver Island in Nuchatlitz that is only accessible by float plane or boat. Tim is offering a SUP summer camp to learn how to paddle and surf the area's remote breaks. His cabin is on a beautiful inlet connected to many other inlets each with incredible sea life, clean air, and quiet.
Instruction will be by Rob Casey, who is writing the first guidebook on stand up paddling. From Seattle, Rob has been kayaking for a decade and has been a commercial photographer for 20 years. He found the Hobuck Hoedown, the NW's only surf kayak and now sup surfing competition. Rob does marketing and assists with boat/board design for Tim's company, On Water Designs. His book is due out Spring 2011 with Mountaineers Books.
Fully catered, you will stay in Tim's cabin on Sea Otter Island. Enjoy fishing, surfing, shell middens, and miles of incredible flat water paddling.
