Tim Sanford - Paddle Method

Providing SUP services in Business, Fitness, Instruction, PSUPA Instructor Trainer, Races, Tours & Trips

I have been lucky to spend the past 10 years and countless hours of water time with paddle students from a unique spectrum of backgrounds and abilities that only a city as big and diverse as Los Angeles could manage to bring together. From that, and my background in professional development and team management, a learning methodology emerged that has become the core of Paddle Method instruction. Designed to build core strength and confidence in paddlers at every skill level, our mission is to strengthen the bonds of the paddling community by engaging more paddlers with the life-sustaining power and serenity of the Stand Up Paddle Boarding, (SUP) way of life.

Paddle Method stand up paddleboard instruction focuses on three core areas of SUP – Lessons, Workouts and Excursions (tours). Build your knowledge of paddle boarding with intro through advanced flat water lessons or join us and a group of paddling enthusiasts for one of our signature stroke technique clinics and workout sessions designed to build your strength and confidence so you can paddle faster, burn more calories and paddle confidently in a variety of conditions.

Let’s Go Paddle! A guided, paddleboard tour or excursion is where you can see, first hand, all of your hard work and practice come together.

All of our paddle board lessons and workouts focus on building muscle memory along with your strength and paddle skills so your confidence grows with every stroke while allowing you to progress at their natural pace.

My goal is to build a skilled and knowledgeable SUP community so all who have felt the pull of the Ocean, Bay, Lake or River can explore the world from a SUP point of view.

Paddle on! Tim

Paddle Method lessons range from first-timer “get your feet wet” basic lessons to advanced coastal down-winders and SUP surfing. We have access to a range of environments from calm, flat-water lagoons, and marinas to open ocean coastal tours and surf zone so that all can be challenged at their own pace. Skill-builders, water workouts, and Paddle Method paddle games are available for paddlers working on becoming stronger paddlers, interested in entering their first SUP race, or prepping for an International paddle trip and adventures. Semi-private SUP classes along with private and small group coaching are available year round as are our signature private group Paddle Party with beach and Paddle Games. Bring your friends, family and co-workers for a truly unique private event.
