Commonly Asked Questions

I’m a beginner, is private instruction right for me?

Yes, private instruction is appropriate for all skill levels.

Where do you do private instruction?

My go-to venues for private SUP instruction is Lake Julian and meandering sections of the French Broad through Asheville.

Do I really need professional instruction? My friends take me out all the time.

If you feel stuck in a rut, not fully supported by your peers or overwhelmed with fear/nerves, then I highly recommend private instruction. Your friends may be able to float, but how do you know that their advice and technique is effective? Several of my clients have had to unlearn ineffective habits passed down to them by their friends. The sooner you invest in professional instruction, the sooner you excel in SUP and meet your goals.

Am I worth the investment? It’s just paddling.

Yes you are worth it and here’s why:

It’s not ‘just stand up paddleboarding.’ How you approach the challenges of paddling is how you approach challenges in other areas of your life. If you can overcome your fear and choose courage on the water, you can do it in other areas like asking for a raise, making bold requests of friends and family, and making healthier choices.

Does paddling bring you joy? Then it’s 100% worth it. Investing in your passion is also investing in your wellbeing. When you invest in your wellbeing you invest in the wellbeing of those closest to us. If you’re feeling confident, courageous and fulfilled you’ll be in a much better position to inspire and take care of those you love most.

It’s not ‘just stand up paddleboarding,’ it’s your life!
