Ian Howard - Thunderbird SUP, Paddle Shop Guru and Stand Up Paddleboard Instructor (PSUPA Certified)

Ian caught his first wave 10 years ago and that is when he got hooked on surfing. His continual love of Water Sports has inspired him to have a constant respect for the water and our environment. He was introduced to SUP 7 years ago as a way to enjoy the water consistently. Since he can't get to the coast to surf as often as he would like, he loves teaching surfing whenever he has the chance and is thrilled that he has the opportunity to share his passion for SUP with the Seattle community year round as a Certified Paddle board Instructor.
