Home » About » Brian

IMG_4020Brian is an ACA Stand Up Paddling Level 2 Instructor, AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, New York State Licensed Rock and Ice climbing guide, Wilderness First Aid, Red Cross CPR, and Eagle Scout.

Brian’s love of the outdoors started in the scouts and family camping trips and at the age of 14 he learned to surf. Ever since then the waves have led him on surf and sup adventures to Hawaii, Peru, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and all over the east coast. SUP has taken over and he loves to enter races on his 12’6 Outlaw, tour in the local flatwater and push it in the surf.

In 1992 he got bit by the climbing bug and has traveled to 18 states, Canada and France in search of challenging routes and awesome stone. Getting his AMGA certifcation has led him to teach hundreds of people over the years.​

As a brand new dad he can’t wait to get Ridge out on a SUP to enjoy the quiet glass in the early morning.

Brian is a sponsored Team member of Booskerdoo Fresh Roasted Coffee out of Monmouth Beach, NJ helping to spread the stoke of quality coffee and outdoor pursuits.  Thank goodness for this  because he drinks a lot of coffee.
