Katie and Jared

We are Katie and Jared, PSUPA certified instructors with more than 8 years of paddling experience who own a paddleboard company on Maui called Mermaid Yoga. We started our business in Washington in 2020 and decided to go all in on our dreams and take the risk of a lifetime moving our life & business to Maui in 2021 for the opportunity to operate Mermaid Yoga year round. The majority of our clients are novice, self-taught or first-time paddlers who allow us the pleasure of sharing fundamental paddling skills with them. We know there is only so much a person can learn and retain throughout one class on the water and it gets expensive to keep coming back. SUP Essentials is our effort to create an affordable, self-paced option where our customers can continue to reference the content of the course as they learn, grow and advance. With the ever increasing popularity of standup paddleboarding along with the increase in paddleboarder drownings each year, we wanted to create a course to educate folks about water safety and paddling techniques. The majority of paddlers we see make very basic mistakes on the water that put them at risk or make paddling much more challenging. We aim to help shift the collective paddling skills and education and we hope our students will share their expertise with their paddling friends and family.
