    About the teachers: 

    Julie Pelikan, Growing up near the ocean, rivers, and lakes, her passion for water started at a young age. It has infused her daily life, whether it's a sunrise meditation at the beach or a long paddle in the coastal waterways, her love for the elements has created a foundation for her lifestyle. Being a certified yoga instructor, naturally Julie was excited to try a SUP Yoga class as another fun way to enjoy the great outdoors. After her first class Julie knew she must share this experience with others. Julie is a long-time resident of Wrightsville Beach and has extensive knowledge of the local waterways and weather patterns, as well as water safety and water rescue training. As the Senior SUP Yoga teacher for Longwave Yoga, Julie has apprenticed and co-facilitated the Longwave SUP Yoga Teacher Training Program since it's conception in 2014. Julie has ran countless adventures out on the water and has helped yogis discover the love of paddling, and paddlers discover a love for yoga. As Julie guides you not only on the water, but also through a yoga asana class on your floating yoga mat, expect to be challenged in the best of ways and be prepared to discover the true present moment within the elements.
     
    Jarrod Covington, owner and found of Wrightsville SUP was born in Beaufort, NC, Jarrod Covington has spent his life on the water. Although surfing and windsurfing were constants in that childhood, his interests quickly expanded to include kiteboarding, paddle boarding, fishing, and a great deal more.

    Covington graduated from UNC Wilmington with a degree in Finance, but ever loyal to the southeastern coast, he walked away from the corporate grind. Forecasting the potential for SUP growth in the area, he founded Wrightsville SUP in 2011. The business has thrived on Covington’s own dynamic and multi-faceted interests and now facilitates rentals and lessons in a variety of water sports and activities.
