Hello and Welcome to Paddle Heaven! Ashley and I are excited to have you here and share our love of stand up paddle boarding and kayaking with you!
We thoroughly enjoy the outdoors no matter where we are. Having lived and traveled all over the world we have yet to find an outdoor activity that doesn’t suit us.
Since Ashley is a Florida girl born and raised and I have lived everywhere from the midwest, Colorado, California, Florida and Hawaii, the water is naturally a big part of our lives.
From our first time kayaking in Kauai and stand up paddle boarding in Tampa we have been in paddle heaven!
Even though I didn’t fully get into stand up paddle boarding until years later, I remember my first time hopping on a board in Kaneohe Bay Hawaii while I was stationed there in the late 1990’s. I was more into surfing then but knowing there was another way to enjoy being on, and sometimes in, the ocean was absolutely exciting.
Sure, we are fortunate to live and have lived in areas where the climate is ideal to be on the water year round but most likely you live somewhere where you can enjoy kayaking or stand up paddle boarding at least several months a year.
I encourage you to give either activity a shot and I am willing to bet you will be hooked just like we are.
We started Paddle Heaven for folks just like you that are interested in either stand up paddleboarding or kayaking for the first time. We all were beginners once and our goal is to make the process of choosing your equipment, deciding where to paddle and even sharing your experiences as easy as possible.
Whether you want to get in shape or just breathe in some fresh air from time to time paddling in any form will not only accomplish that but help clear your mind and rejuvenate your soul!
Feel free to contact us with any questions you have, that’s what we are here for. At the end of the day we just want you to have fun on the water and enjoy your new activity as much as we do.
