My love of paddling began as a child when my grandpa would take canoe trips with me. Those happy memories from my childhood motivated me to start my own paddling and tour company so I could share the joys of paddling with others. Join me to create your own paddle adventure memories!

    Great class for a great price. It was great to be able to have some time to just paddle around and get comfortable on the board!

    I can't remember the last time I had so much fun for $20. Luke was super enthusiastic. He took about 15 minutes to go over the basics of SUP while we were on shore. We then paddled around for another 30 minutes or so while he gave us pointers and cheerfully answered our questions. After that, we were free to paddle and explore on our own. I loved the small class size. Thank you for a great class!

    Aside from initial location snafus that caused most of the class to arrive late (the website has us going to the wrong place) it was an excellent experience. Allison is friendly, patient, & encouraging. I thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into the world of SUP, & it will not be my last! Thanks, Allison!!

    Allison had everything we needed and was ready to paddle! She gave us some basic instruction and a few little tricks as we paddled around Sloan's Lake. It was a fun couple of hours!
