Westy has been criss-crossing the United State for the last 3 years holding clinics and he's coming back home to Wisconsin!
"I've been fortunate over the last 3 years to not only attend some first class events but also share my love of paddling through my clinics at events. It will be my first time hosting a clinic in Sheboygan, WI and I'm really excited to work with Mike and his crew at EOS."

Topics covered will include:

  • The four major aspects of the SUP stroke
  • Creating efficiency during the stroke
  • How to get the most out of your board through positioning
  • Race related topics

"I've found in my travels that every clinic is different. I cover the basics and then really gear the clinic towards the people attending and what they'd like to get out of it."

Westy's clinics fill fast so please contact EOS @ 920-208-7873 or Westy directly @ 312-909-4066 for any questions and register right here.

"All I know is that paddling has given me so much and I love giving back and I find this is a really good way to do that. Also at the core of this it's supposed to be FUN so I make sure every clinic is not only informative but also fun."-Westy
