Hi, I'm Ben, a paddle instructor here at Mike's Paddle. I started SUP when I took the Intro to SUP class with Mike when he first opened his shop in 2014. I've been hooked ever since and have been teaching courses and private lessons for the last three years.

I am excited to share my love of this sport with you. It's a privilege to have the opportunity to introduce others to something that has been a passion of mine and I hope will be a passion of yours. Whether you're looking for fun, fitness, or to just get away from the daily grind, SUP really checks all the boxes.

I look forward to meeting you and seeing you on the water. There's an amazing world to explore out on the Bay and an amazing community at Mike's.
