SJ started GirlsGetOutThereNZ as a ‘closed’ Facebook group in early 2014 to share her love for stand up paddle boarding and surfing. Her passion is to share her love of water and the outdoors with other like minded girls. Her ambition is to inspire other girls wanting to get off the couch and lead a healthier active lifestyle and have lots of fun along the way.
In August 2014 SJ went to Sydney and qualified as a ASI Level 1 7 2 Stand Up Paddle Board Instructor with Water Rescue and First Aid Certificates under her belt she then had the qualifications and eagerness to now teach girls how to SUP. Starting with lessons every Sunday with a small group of four, even in the depths of winter, girls were feeling the stoke and confidence that stand up paddle boarding brings.
Keen to encourage and reach more girls, SJ set up the business page and company officially as ‘GirlsGetOutThereNZ Ltd’ in October 2014. In 2015 SJ the went on to become a PaddleFit Certified Coach by USA team Coach ‘Brody Welte’ founder of PaddleFit.
