Erin O'Malley

Stand Up Paddle Instructor, Yoga Teacher
Home Town: 
Mammoth Lakes, CA

Erin was introduced to stand up paddle by a Hawaiian friend living in Laguna Beach. Paddleboarding was so new back then that the first board she paddled was a tandem surfboard! Even with a board that was not really meant for stand up paddling, she fell in love. 

Before Erin found her way to a SUP she was a World Cup snowboarder, avid longboarder and an accomplished yoga teacher. Her passion for paddling grew so strong that she launched Sunset Stand Up Paddle, based in Laguna Beach, California. Erin has done everything from leading SUP Yoga teacher trainings to multi day adventures within the western states. Erin is also on the SUP committee for the  American Canoe and Kayak Association. She volunteers her time to the committee to further education and safety within the paddleboard community. 
In 2018 Erin will be expanding destination paddle trips for Sunset Stand Up Paddle.. Upcoming trips will include adventure paddling in stunning locations such as Catalina Island, Yosemite  and the Colorado River. Stay tuned and jump on board!
