WASHINGTON D.C / MARYLAND / VIRGINIA
Originally from Dominican Republic, I would spend the summers there with my family. We would spend a lot of time outdoors but i remember always being attracted to the waves.
Body surfing quickly evolved to boogie boarding, then surfing, kitesurfing, and eventually SUP. My first experience on a SUP was at our local surf break in tiny waves with no instruction. It was difficult to even keep my balance and i had no idea what to do with the paddle but it was a fun challenge.
Over the next couple years i would try it every once in a while but wasn’t until one day at Chincoteague when it all clicked. There wasn’t enough wind to kite so i took a SUP out and had a blast on 2 foot waves! Soon after i got my own board and now i don’t leave home with out it. It lets you be on the water in almost any conditions, and opens access to all types of places. Later I got certified to teach and met Greg with paddlestroke SUP who introduced me to the river. This opened up a whole new world right in my own backyard and how I started riding ERS.
