Rebecca and I quit our jobs to run the school and shop, and I feel very lucky to call the beach my office. I love teaching beginners in both sports as I get to see them get the thrill of riding out on the bay for the first time.

The best thing about teaching windsurfing and kiteboarding is that they are sports everyone can learn in a short period of time. There is nothing better than being on the water.
