Tell us a little bit about yourself

Hi! My name is Jeremy! Everyone calls me Jerms. I grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and just recently relocated to Vancouver, BC. I currently work in product sustainability, I am a Certified Tennis Instructor and love doing anything that gets me moving--hockey, tennis, hiking, cycling, surfing, skiing… and obviously paddling. I play in a band called Parkland (Check it out!). I started paddling over10 years ago just for fun and fell in love.

For the past 5 years when I was living in Saskatchewan I would paddle year round on the South Saskatchewan River. Temps could be +30 C in the summer to -20 C in the winter.

I’m stoked to bring my Hala board west with me and start to explore new paddle spots. Ocean, lake or river, I’m down. If you’re ever in the Vancouver area, let me know. Let’s go for a paddle!
