Why I love to SUP and how I discovered it…

I love to SUP, especially whitewater SUP, because I love the feeling of walking on moving water and communing with nature.  I discovered flatwater SUP when a friend who lives in Tahoe encouraged my husband and me to try paddling on the Lake.  Fifteen minutes after standing up, we were already thinking about buying one! A few years later we explored some rivers in the California Redwoods, and we’ve been hooked on river SUP ever since.

The body of water you’ll most likely find me on…

You’ll most likely find me on Lake Tahoe, on the Truckee River, or on the South Fork of the American River.

Which boards I’m riding? Which one is my favorite? …

I’m riding the Atcha 8‘6 and the Playa.  I love both, of course, but my favorite is my Atcha because it peforms so well on rivers.

My next dream paddling adventure is…

My next dream paddling adventures will hopefully be exploring the rivers and coastline of Costa Rica or Patagonia, and an overnight river SUP trip somewhere in Oregon or Idaho.

What I do when I am not paddling?

When I’m not paddling, I’m changing the world one First Grader at a time as a public school First Grade teacher.
