Have you changed boards/paddles/equipment since you started? If so, why?
I have only owned the Endurance, but continue to borrow and sample other boards to find the one that will call me to the water the most.
Do you have any advice to new paddlers?
Just get on the water and paddle! I need to do more. If you are blessed to live near the water, get in it or on it. It does the mind and body good.
What do you like most about SPC?
The camaraderie and support from fellow members. The Club is so inclusive of fellow paddlers regardless of of your skill level or goals. In jest, we are a “Tanning Club with a Paddle Problem!”
How do you get involved with the community? What charities or causes do you support? Do You belong to a non-profit group?
I have served on several area boards (pun intended) and am currently the President of the Portsmouth Rotary Club.
I also like to participate in beach cleanups and volunteer at soup kitchens and help in any way I am able.
