Danielle attended one of the last classes in 2014 and fell in love with paddle boarding immediately. As a kid she used to sail races and spend all her weekends and holidays on the water. With paddle boarding she re-found her love for watersports and bought herself a BOGA board to keep on paddling during the fall and winter months. She also became a close friend and in spring we decided she could start teaching start up classes, as a former ski instructor in America she knows hoe to teach an motivate. We are so happy to have her on board. By now Danielle has her ASI level 1 and 2, Functional Paddling certification and last winter she attended a yoga for surfers course with Peggy Hall in San Clemente which means you can also meet her during one of our SUP & YOGA classes this summer. Danielle teaches the start up and follow up classes every monday night and whenever she has some extra time she attends the tours and events.

Danielle is also a member of team BOGA Europe and has attended the SUP 11 CITY team in Team Boga in 2014 and in 2015 she paddled the last stage on her Typhoon 14' team board.

Winter paddles still going strong

Since winters are not winters anymore we at BOGA paddle boards are able to keep stand up paddling all year long. As the water is colder you do have to be aware that you go out on the water and stay safe! Dress properly: wetsuit, neopreen pants and top or wear a drysuit and thick surf boots. Take an iPhone along, in a water proof case or bag and do always wear a leash attached to your paddle board. We also recommend you to have a look at the weather forecast before you go out and check if the winds will stay calm. Now you are set to go and explore winter sunrises, sunsets or go out with some friends for a fun ride if the colder weather frightens you. It;s much more fun then your local gym on a sunny wintersday! Enjoy and share the stoke.
