Tell us a little bit about yourself

Hi! My name is Jeremy! Everyone calls me Jerms. I grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and currently live in Saskatoon, which is located on Treaty 6 Territory. I am a chemist, a Certified Tennis Instructor and love doing anything that gets me moving--hockey, tennis, hiking, surfing, skiing… and obviously paddling. I play in a band called Parkland (Check it out!). I started paddling about 10 years ago just for fun and fell in love. 3 years ago I moved to a new part of town where I could walk to the river to paddle and set a goal for myself to paddle all year round. From -18C (or 0 Fahrenheit ) to over 30C, the river in this city is an unreal place to paddle. I also love having inflatable boards to pack up and take out to the west coast for some SUP surf. My wife and I also get up to her family’s cabin on one of the most amazing lakes in the province. Waking up and paddling with a cup of coffee and the loons is unreal!
