There is nothing we enjoy more than seeing the enjoyment that people get from stand up paddle boarding for the first time. This is why we provide our clients with the best equipment, techniques and ideal locations. We want your first stand up paddle boarding experience to be a SUP in paradise.

Chris is the founder of both Surf in Paradise and Sup in Paradise and has a degree in Coastal Resource Management.

Chris lives right on Budds Beach, an ideal location for a Stand Up Paddle boarding experience. Having taught thousands of people to surf Chris is now excited to share his new love of SUPing. He has loads of knowledge, experience and patience, which he has developed from many years of work in both education and surf coaching.
