Returning to her former home on Martha's Vineyard after living in Hawaii for 8 years, Nico Corbo was inspired to spread the aloha spirit and her love for the ocean when she founded Aloha Paddle MV in 2012. During her time in Hawaii she worked as a special education teacher, led kayak tours, and taught surfing lessons. Since her return she has earned certifications with World Paddling Assoc., Paddle Fit, and Yoga Teacher Training from Yoga Barn MV. She especially loves how people of all abilities can enjoy the sport and experience nature from a whole new perspective. Her work has been featured in Vogue and Southern New England Living magazines.
adrian johnson-Level 2 aca sup instructor
Summer of 2004 Adrian packed into his van loaded high with windsurfers and left his lifelong home in the Canadian Rockies bound for the Eastern Seaboard and a life closer to the ocean. While on a wind-less windsurfing trip to Cape Hatteras in 2010 he discovered SUP and has since become deeply connected with the sport's versatile nature and ability to bring balance into his life. Adrian says, "SUP is like a one-stop-shop for everything I've come to love about sports, and it's always open, so you can't help but just keep coming back for more!" A lifelong athlete with a ten year snowboarding career to his credit, Adrian's passion for sport is complemented by his personable and fun-loving character. His experience in SUP includes short and long distance racing, 30+ mile marathon events and the Dave Kalama Technique Training. Adrian met Nico in 2012 and partnered in Aloha Paddle in 2015, proving that SUP has changed his life for the better!
