Welcome To SherriKayaks
Welcome to SherriKayaks, your source for paddle sports instruction and information in southeast Wisconsin! It is my hope that you will use this site to find answers to your questions about canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), and to find the quality instruction that you seek to become a better paddler.
If you are reading this now, it most likely means that you already have a desire to go paddling. Perhaps you are intrigued by the prospect of getting out onto our beautiful local waterways as a relaxing getaway or for a change in your exercise routine. It may be that you yearn to develop the skills to challenge yourself on Lake Michigan. Maybe you like to fish and are looking for a way to get to some secret spot that the bigger boats can’t reach. These are only a few of the many and various reasons that canoeing, kayaking, and SUPing have become such popular recreation activities in the past few years. Taking a lesson is the best way to get the most out of these sports whatever your reason for participating.
If you’re still a little hesitant to take the next step towards becoming a paddler, I invite you to send me an e-mail or give me a call. I’m always more than happy to talk about paddling. It costs you nothing and you are under no obligation to take my classes. I’ve been canoeing and kayaking since 1988, and have been an ACA and BCU-certified instructor since 1998. More recently, I have also taken up stand-up paddling and became certified as an instructor in 2014. For eight and a half years I managed a retail paddle sports shop. I’ve paddled canoes, sea kayaks, whitewater kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and outrigger canoes in waters all over the United States. If you have a question, I can probably answer it or at least find the answer for you.
Take some time to explore the website. If you’re a beginner ready to try paddling for the first time or an experienced kayaker looking to improve your skills, check out the course descriptions and the schedule of classes to find one that best suits your needs. If you don’t see a course to meet your needs, give me a call and maybe we can set up a private lesson. Mostly, I hope that I can help you find the fun and enjoyment that I have found in paddling for so many years. I look forward to seeing you on the water!
