What are your favorite outdoor activites?

Surfing, stand up paddling, scuba diving, kayaking, mt. biking.

What attracts you to kite boarding or stand up paddeling ?

In 6 years of SUP I've seen way more wild-life than I have in 30 years of surfing. I also find the rhythm of paddling relaxing. I also enjoy the solitude & peace of paddling up the north coast by myself.

Are you already a kiteboarder or stand up paddler ?

SUP -- wish I had another life to learn to kiteboard and pursue other cool activities.

What are your interests in regards to this meet up ?

Engaging those who SUP and kayak in sharing their paddle skills with those who don't get the chance. Imagine taking a blind child out on a SUP or seeing the freedom a child feels paddling a kayak instead of rolling in a wheelchair... It's phenomenal to witness and be part of that.

Would you be interested in organizing an event or get-together on this meet up ?

Yes, absolutely!


Started helping children with special needs surf, kayak, and bodyboard in Santa Cruz in 2001. It was life-changing. I've volunteered ever since and also co-founded two non-profits to do the same in other communities in CA, CT, NY, and NJ.
