Certification as Standup Paddleboard Instructor. The number one goal of the “ASI” Certification Course is to provide for the overall safety of the Standup Paddleboard Beginner through a Standard of Instruction based on overall water safety and sound SUP teaching techniques. Any sport that involves open water conditions is inherently dangerous. A Standard of SUP Instruction Manual and Practical Teaching Techniques will provide the Certified “ASi” Instructor the ability to provide the best learning conditions for all beginner SUP paddlers.
The Academy of Standup Paddleboard Instructors will learn all aspects of Basic SUP Instruction through classroom instruction and practical learning techniques.
The Mission of SUP4C
SUP 4 Cancer is dedicated to embracing the healing power of the elements with the determination of the human spirit to impact lives affected by cancer through funding of advocacy, prevention, and survivorship programs.
What We Do
We fund programs that focus on the health and living aspect of this disease – prevention, awareness, and survivorship for those with cancer. We are excited to announce that for 2011 we will be hosting our own SUP, Surf, and Kiteboarding survivorship camps for young adults with cancer. These camps aim to foster self-confidence and strengthen survivorship through kiteboarding, standup paddling, and other outdoor adventure skills. Read more about our survivorship camps here.
It began from our personal experiences with cancer.
Professional kiteboarding instructor and SUP enthusiast Tonia Farman, watched her brother, Scott, battle Leukemia for a year before he passed away in June 2007. For those 13 months, Scott braved chemotherapy, radiation, and clinical study tests that no human being should ever have to endure. Watching this, Tonia felt helpless, but knew she had to do something.
The result was Kiteboarding 4 Cancer (KB4C), which has since evolved to Athletes for Cancer, a non-profit designed to sponsor action sport fundraising events that donate proceeds to partnering cancer charities.
In KB4C’s first event on August 25th, 2007, kiteboarders raised pledge money for one of KB4C’s partnering cancer research organizations, then competed in an 8-hour endurance kiteboarding race on the Columbia River. As many from the surf, windsurf, and paddling community attended the event, we quickly decided our next event would be SUP 4 Cancer! So in 2009 SUP 4 Cancer was born!
SUP 4 Cancer is run in conjunction with Athletes for Cancer (formerly Kiteboarding 4 Cancer) which is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, IRS tax ID #42-1737854. We fund our event and charities solely through tax-deductible contributions from private individuals, corporations and foundations. Please join us in the fight against cancer!!
KB4C and SUP4C is in memory of Scott Farman, as well as the many otherwise active and healthy individuals who fought cancer and are no longer with us.
Let's share all news, talks, good and bad, about feature films and special documentaries on standup paddling and also let's get the how-to videos in there. And if you got some footage or project you would like produced, post it here and let's chat!
