I have been a kayak tour guide and instructor since 1994.  Certifications by the American Canoe Association include Level 4 Coastal Kayak, Level 3 Surf Kayak, Level 2 Surfski, and Level 1 SUP.   My background in racing is primarily in surf ski, but also sea kayak, marathon canoe, outrigger canoe, K1, K2, and SUP.   I run Virginia Beach Paddlesports which sells Stellar surfskis and kayaks, and paddles from GPower, Orka and various paddling accessories.  I am passionate about getting people to paddle better and enjoy the sport more!
