Meet Julia

Stand-Up Paddleboard Coach

I am a SUP addict who always looks for new adventures and loves to socialise with positive people.

 

Last year, I have transformed my personal hobby into a professional career wanting to expose and promote a new way of living. At the same time, sharing my knowledge and experience with others to ensure they are equipped with essential knowledge and skills which would allow them to explore the world by SUP in a safe and fun manner.

My SUPing Story

Originally from Poland, I moved to the UK straight after my A-levels chasing a dream for a different life for me. Over these years, I went out of my comfort zone and managed to discover new countries and cultures, tried new things, and met different people.

 

My journey with watersports started a few years ago when I had the opportunity to try surfing, windsurfing, and stand-up paddleboarding. As I am like a fish who loves water, I have always been upset that I couldn't continue these activities throughout the year and they were only a holiday thing. I remember my 'WOW' moment when I discovered inflatable stand-up paddleboards. Since then, as a person hungry of adventures who never stays still, I have become a SUP addict!

 

In 2020, I have transformed my personal hobby into a professional career wanting to expose and promote a new way of living... As a single mum, it was incredibly important to me that I found something which allowed my little boy to be part of this journey.  SUPERA was created to make paddleboarding accessible to everyone in the community and to unite existing SUP passionates. I hope to re-kindle the spark for life with a sense of curiosity, adventure, and a good time.  

In the day to day life, I do wear many different hats like studying a business degree, go to work like everyone else, or be a mum. Yeah... I know, that's a lot! What's make me keep going is my little boy, who is my reason why. My life mission is to be a living example and hope to inspire him to be brave, bold, and curious. I want him to understand that he could be whoever and whatever he wanted to be… as long as he has the passion and never stops chasing his dreams.
