About me

I have always been on or around the water from a young age. Growing up I spent most of my summers in lovely Leitrim on the river Shannon. I love all sports and I consider myself to be a very active person. I currently play GAA, hurling, padel tennis and Golf. Although as I am getting older I have also taken up positions as coach / manager and most recently refereeing.


I studied Business Management at the Technological University, Dublin achieving a 1st Class Honours and also holds a level 6 certificate in volunteering.

I started paddleboarding in 2017 and since then I have got hundreds of hours under my belt and have paddled all over Ireland and further a field. It was only natural to become an instructor and then I decided to open my own school!

History

Modern day

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is believed to have originated in Hawaii in the 1900s, where it was used as a way for surfers to navigate the waves while standing up. It has since grown in popularity and has become a sport in its own right, with various competitions and races held around the world. In recent years, it has seen a significant increase in popularity  as a recreational activity and many people use it for fitness, touring, and exploring.

Paddleboarding is a water sport in which the participant stands on a board and uses a paddle to move through the water. It is a full-body workout that engages the core, legs, and arms. It also provides a low-impact cardiovascular workout and can be a relaxing way to enjoy being on the water. Additionally, paddleboarding can be a great way to explore new areas, whether that's a lake, river, or ocean. It can also be a great way to enjoy time with friends and family.
