Be ready to roll when you need it. Here is a short video from when I broke my paddle while using it to protect my face from a rock. And one from my Situational Rolling and Bracing classes.
I am proud to say that roll instruction is one of my specialties. Beyond teaching at least 100 students their FIRST roll, I have enjoyed refining many existing rolls to be more efficient in rough water. I am available for private or group classes. Or look for my custom Situational Rolling and Bracing class on the schedule.
Based out of Portland, we offer classes and trips from the beautiful Columbia Gorge through Downtown Portland
and along the entire Oregon Coast.
I offer a wide range of classes from basic sea kayaking to Ocean Rock Gardening
Have you been wanting to explore this beautiful rugged coast? If so, request a custom class and together we can find ways to access it.

As a Bay Area native, I have been paddling the coastal waters of the greater San Francisco Bay Area and Mendocino coast for many years. Along with paddling the tides, currents and islands of San Francisco Bay. Contact me to arrange trips in this wonderful place to paddle.
Offering classes to improve skills & comfort when you paddle
Some of the best paddling on the entire west coast! Mendocino is one of my favorite paddling destinations. Ask for a custom guided trip through this beautiful part of California, or sign on to an existing trip.
This is my home base and where I have done most of my paddling. Sign up for a custom trip and together we will explore the coastline, the bay, or any sites you want to see.
