Your Stand Up Paddleboard Instructor

Hi, I'm Christina.  I live in Portishead and feel lucky to have access to this fantastic marina. I have been paddle boarding since 2012, with experience of paddling on lakes, rivers and in the sea, racing and SUP polo. I have 14 years  experience teaching in a Primary school and took the decision in early 2021 to change direction.  I now work as a forest school assistant and carry out youth mentoring for a local charity alongside teaching SUP.  I feel lucky to be able to spend time with young people in the outdoors helping build their confidence and skills.  In 2020 I qualified with the Water Skills Academy to instruct SUP on enclosed water and gained the WSA Adventure guiding qualification in 2021.  I hold WSA water safety and rescue qualifications and outdoor First Aid.  I am passionate about teaching others and sharing my enjoyment of the sport, particularly after seeing my two daughters learn a love of the water.   Stand up paddle boarding is excellent for physical fitness and mental health alike and, being a low impact sport, is very accessible.  I look forward to teaching you on the water!
