Mike Simpson

Mike has been surfing his entire life and when introduced to stand up paddleboarding it was the perfect hybrid of kayaking and surfing for him. He has paddled countless miles and introduced hundreds of individuals to the sport. From surfing big waves to paddling any distance in any conditions, stand up paddleboarding has become his life and his passion to share with others. Mike is an ACA Level 2 SUP instructor, a BIC Ambassador and a Werner Team Paddler.

Expedition paddling is now Mike’s new passion. He has paddled the East Coast from the Florida Keys to Maine, threaded his way past barges and tankers down the Hudson River to Manhattan and paddled the Connecticut River from source to sea, 420 miles. Most recently he fought challenging winds and seas in a circumnavigation of Puerto Rico.
