About us:

Our Pro Staff is comprised of those who know & love the water!

♦ Cliff... our lead paddler grew up in California.  He started surfing at age 12 & has
spent most of his life surfing California's coast.  Being completely immersed in
surfing he became involved in the surf industry as a Competitor, Contest Judge &
Surf Coach.  Cliff established his own Surfboard label "BLAST" in Huntington
Beach - 1988.  In 2005 he moved his family to South Lake Tahoe to begin the next
phase.  Cliff immediately started paddling Kayaks for fishing/exploring the shores
of Lake Tahoe.  In 2008 he discovered the glide of Stand Up Paddling!  By applying
his lifetime of knowledge & water skills to Stand Up Paddling, Cliff became an
accomplished SUP Race Competitor.  He brings out the best in his paddlers with
simple teaching & progressive techniques.  Cliff is also an avid Fisherman with
over 45 years of angling experience.  The progression to SUP fishing & surfing has
been a natural one which has taken fishing & surfing to a whole new level!  Cliff is
a resident of South Lake Tahoe & PSIA/AASI certified Ski & Snowboard Coach.

♦ Tim... our right hand paddler grew up surfing in La Jolla, CA.  Tim has been
surfing for over 30 years.  He's
spent time in the Hawaiian Islands which has
given him a solid understanding of paddling techniques & movement on the water.
Tim is a PSIA/AASI certified Ski & Snowboard Coach, Resort Trainer & Examiner.
His knowledge & skills bring out the best in Pro Skiers every year.  By applying his teaching & coaching skills to Stand Up Paddling he's become an awesome SUP Instructor.  Tim is a resident of South Lake Tahoe with a passion for water sports.
It's this passion for the water that has led him to Stand Up Paddling!

In the sport of surfing about 95% of your time is spent paddling.  Understanding
ocean conditions/currents in an unforgiving environment, can mean survival!
Efficient paddling is
an essential part of surfing.  Combined, we've over 75 years
of surfing experience!  During winter we teach/coach Skiing & Snowboarding.
As experienced Instructors we understand balance & movement on the water,
whether it be on liquid or frozen.  As professionals we understand progressive
teaching, no matter what your athletic ability may be.  Our skilled Pro Staff has
an awareness of the sometimes harsh mountain environment.  These are a few good reasons why our Pro Instructor/Guides are the best!  To enhance your
adventure & fun we are "mobile" meeting our guests at different beaches around
Lake Tahoe.  This allows for more adventure & enhances your experience.  We'd
love to share our passion for adventure & exploration with you!  Come join us...
