We are a collective of certified paddlesports instructors based in the Bay Area and Sacramento region. By working collectively we are more able to develop, promote and deliver a high quality paddlesports program to our customers.

Mission Statement

The River & Ocean Paddlesports Coaching Collective is dedicated to the delivery of quality, student-centered instruction and coaching in kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Working in collaboration and not competing with outfitters and retailers in the region, we provide:

  • advanced level skills training and assessment;
  • personalized coaching and mentoring;
  • professional guide training and assessment;
  • instructor training and assessment;
  • fun, exciting and educational trips on San Francisco Bay, Tomales Bay and the Open Coast.

A World Class Destination

The strong currents that characterize San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate combine with powerful Pacific swells to produce one of the best teaching locations in the world for sea kayaking, surf kayaking and SUP.

The whole coastline of Northern California is our playground and our classroom. Whilst our courses are concentrated from Sonoma to the San Mateo coast, we delight in exploring new areas. If you have a venue or event that you would like us to teach at, please CONTACT us to set something up.
