Cascadia SUP & Surf is very excited to be on the search for new team members! As a Program Coach, these awesome folks will serve as SUP coaches for our extremely popular Intro to SUP programs, assist with our PaddleFIT workout sessions and be amazing SUP Camp Counselors! It's exciting work and the fulfillment you get doing something you love this summer will impact your life for years to come. Match that with this amazing opportunity to experience being part of the most dynamic and industry-leading Stand Up Paddleboard coaching services around and you can't go wrong.
We are looking for friendly, capable, flexible and thoughtful coaches who respect nature and love working with all people and seeing smiling faces on a regular basis!
The importance of smart social distancing at this time cannot be overstated and Cascadia SUP & Surf is always committed to keeping the health and safety of our family, friends and clients as our top priority. We also understand the positive effect that nature and movement can have on our mental and physical wellbeing. For years, we have taken great pride and joy in providing our communities with unique ways to experience the waterways and outdoor magic of Oregon. And as this, and all communities, grasp ahold of a new reality and seek to grow stronger through this pandemic, we are deepening our commitment to our community by making every stride possible to adjust our operations so that we, and you, can continue to stay active on the water.
We have already decided to cancel all April programs to give folks and ourselves time to settle into these challenges and as we look ahead to May, Cascadia SUP & Surf has created a new protocol for our scheduled classes.
-Please do not come to class if you have any symptoms of illness whatsoever and give us a call if you need to reschedule.
-Please make sure that you lock phones and other valuables in your cars before class or carry them with you in a floating drybag. Car keys should be tethered to you during class. For the time being, we will no longer manage these items for you.
There are a few options for those who have already booked programs during the month of May.
-Apply the cost of your class to another class for future use
-Apply the cost of your class to a Cascadia SUP Virtual Gift Card for use on any SUP or Surf program.
-Request a full refund for your booking.
We will continue to respond to emails, phone calls and voicemails in the most timely manner possible. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call us at 971-808-2787 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these challenging seas together and we look forward to seeing you all on the other side, stronger than ever.

Welcome to the final installment of the Water People Workout! Today we'll dive into some of the fitness movements and recovery nutrition considerations the Water People Team incorporate into their lifestyle of staying healthy, fit and active.
Water People Movements
In order to keep the fire burning after your yoga and stretching warmup, we will do these Water People movements in a circuit with no more than 30 seconds between each one. Having a solid and ever changing set of movements that focus on various muscular systems in your body will go a long way to ensuring you are challenging different areas that you will need out on or in the water. Here are a few of our favorite movements that keep us strong, healthy and agile out there!
Water People Workout Recovery Nutrition
Dr. Julie Briley isn’t just a dedicated mother, author and practicing naturopathic doctor in Portland, OR, she also knows a thing or two about nutrition...ok she knows A LOT about nutrition. We are so fortunate to have her as part of the Water People Team and the knowledge she brings keeps us healthy throughout the trip! Her post-workout nutrition recommendations start before the workout even begins (huh?). Taking care to hydrate before your workout can prevent issues after you finish training. In general, make sure you consume a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water each day (for example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you need at least 75 ounces of water daily). Being well-hydrated will help prevent cramping and will relieve muscle soreness, allowing you to recover more quickly. During exercise, your muscles break down proteins and you use your stored carbohydrates (glycogen) for energy. It’s also important to replace both carbs and proteins post-workout to enhance recovery. The best way to do this is to aim to eat a meal balanced in carbs, proteins, and healthy fats within 60 minutes of a workout. If you aren’t able to eat a complete meal within an hour, then it’s best to grab a protein shake or protein bar until you can.
