Welcome to SherriKayaks, your source for paddlesports 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.

Are you are intrigued by the prospect of paddling beautiful local waterways? Do you yearn to develop the skills to kayak on the Great Lakes? Are you a fisherman looking for a way to get to the spots that bigger boats can’t reach. These are only a few of many reasons why kayaking, SUP, and canoeing, have become such popular recreational activities. Taking a lesson is the best way to get the most out of these sports whatever your reason for participating.

Do you have questions? 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 a certified instructor since 1998 with the ACA and BCU.  In 2014, I became certified as a SUP instructor. For almost nine 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.  With my background, I can answer a lot of your questions about paddling.

Please explore the website.  Whether a novice paddler or experienced sea kayaker, check out the course descriptions and the schedule of classes to find one that best suits your needs.  If you don’t see what you want, give me a call and maybe we can set up a private lesson.   Mostly, I hope to help you find the fun and enjoyment that I have found in paddling for so many years. 

See you on the water!
