WHY I DO THIS
Owner, Kayak Instructor and Guide
Everything I do on the water should satisfy some part of my soul. Whether I'm just foolin' around in boats, or working with students, joy is at the heart of what I do.
I currently hold American Canoe Association Coastal Kayak Level 4 Open Water and River Kayak Level 2 Instructor Certifications. I am also an Instructor Trainer Candidate, Coastal L3.
I firmly believe in core skills: strokes & maneuvers, and safety & rescue. I have a genuine interest in providing my students with a solid foundation so they can get out on the water safely. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say I enjoy the rescues the most. "Let's get wet!" I emphasize team building, situational awareness, and the three Ws (wind, weather, water).
