    Introduction to Stand Up Paddling
    Presented by Rob Casey
    Wednesday, April 2nd, 7:00 pm

    Rob Casey is the author of 'Stand Up Paddling Flat Water to Surf and Rivers' the first guidebook on SUP for Mountaineers Books. In 2012 he revised Randel Washburne's classic NW paddling guide "Kayaking Puget Sound," and added 10 new trips. His business Salmon Bay Paddle offers year around SUP instruction and tours in places like Deception Pass, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and surfing freighter waves in Seattle. He's the co-founder of the PSUPA - Professional Stand Up Paddle Association which provides instructor certification and training. Recently he's been designing a 17 foot touring SUP which will have storage like a sea kayak.

    Originally a sea, surf and whitewater kayaker, Rob and his partner Christy started the Hobuck Hoedown. They also co-organize the St Paddles Day Race at Alderbrook Resort, and run a Monday evening SUP race in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard in summer.

    If you would be interested in participating in a Stand Up Paddle clinic on the day of the presentation, send Rob an email at salmonbaypaddle@gmail.com .
