OUR TEAM

Mark Renouf – Co-Director

After many of years of primary school teaching and then 14 years as a school principal, Mark made the decision to continue his passion for providing people with learning opportunities to further develop their fitness, enjoyment for the outdoors, health and wellbeing by becoming a SUP Instructor

“Stand Up paddleboarding has been a natural progression for me in my love of the ocean and water sports like surfing, kayaking, swimming and sailing. SUP has given me a huge amount of pleasure and fun, increased my fitness and physical strength and my whole sense of health and wellbeing. SUP has also provided me with an avenue to share my passion for water sports with my career as an educator.”

“ I know how much SUP and the ocean has given me as a person, and I find it so rewarding to teach people of all ages; to feel that same sense of adventure, fun, and enjoyment. From paddling on flat water to catching their first wave, it is so inspiring to be a part of that journey.”

Sharon Bourke – SUP Instructor

Growing up around the beautiful Gippsland Lakes, Sharon has always had a connection to the water. After moving to Melbourne she  kept that connection by discovering Stand Up Paddle Boarding over 10yrs ago at her local bayside beach. Since then her love of the sport has grown from competing in flat water events to downwind racing both locally and interstate.

“Sup allows me to enjoy the water independently or with friends. As an Instructor I love sharing the Sup experience because it is so achievable on so many levels, and encouraging people to experience Sup for the first time is simply a sheer delight.”
