Join us for a fun stand-up paddleboard session! We’ll be in touch before the session about the meet up location as we’ll aim to surf a spot with little to no crowd and fun conditions. We’ll also communicate about the guests level of experience and goals. When we arrive we’ll spend some time assessing the conditions and discussing how to navigate the line-up. Stand-up paddle surfing is super fun and a great way to take advantage of smaller surf and softer conditions, but it can also be dangerous in a crowded line-up and in many places a few bad apples making reckless decisions have made SUP’s unwelcome. This experience is as much about the importance of protecting our playground and letting our time in the water inspire our actions on land as it about catching waves. On the water we’ll cover proper stroke technique, bracing, and how to navigate the line-up before catching some waves. Throughout the lesson we’ll work on different components of catching waves unique to SUP from approach angle to weight distribution and paddle position. To wrap up we’ll do a quick beach or parking lot clean-up to show respect for the place and leave it better than we found it.
I am a commited waterman and environmentalist who combines my passion and purpose through my non-profit Plastic Tide I’ve been surfing for 20 years and love be on the water any way possible - surf, kite, sup, windsurf, whitewater and have competed in multiple disciplines over the years. I love to share my passion and knowledge for my favorite playgrounds and am confident teaching in both the ocean and river. SUP surfing is a great way to explore and often access waves overlooked by short boarders etc. and I am knowledgeable of the coast north and south of Santa Cruz.
