I'll never forget the time I taught my first kayaking lesson. Though I had mentored many folks over the years and given informal bits of instruction here and there, actually spending a day getting to know a person and their goals, and then customizing the experience to best help them achieve their whitewater dreams, awakened a sense of purpose I never knew existed within me. More than just discovering this burning within myself, I am very proud to be working for who I consider to be the foremost paddling instruction program around. Built from the passion of legendary paddler Jeff West, Ace's motto is to "Do it for the love of it!" Everyone involved with Ace is there for one reason - to share our passion of kayaking with the world. If you're looking to start whitewater paddling, have even been at it a while and would like to accelerate your game through professional instruction, or are new to rivers all together and want a guided tour of one of our amazing southeastern rivers, Ace is without a doubt your best option!
