“Our love of being on the water and embracing all that Perth, WA has to offer has been the inspiration behind SUP Tonic Australia” Scroll down to meet our team!
Maree’s 15 year career as a Property Manager came to an organic end as her dream to start a local Stand Up Paddle Boarding business became a reality. As a twelve year local resident of the Town of Bassendean and being so close to the Swan River it seemed like the most normal and natural thing to do!
After many years of travelling solo overseas, living in remote places and turning her hand to many areas of work she’s now committed to promoting the benefits of stand up paddle boarding to the local and wider community. As a non competitive paddler Maree’s focus has always been to encourage and support those wanting to try stand up paddle boarding for fun, fitness and mental well-being.
Maree’s passion for SUP compliments her love of nature, animals and a simple life. When she’s not running classes, she’ll be off on a road trip somewhere exploring the south west with her paddle board and sharing her adventures with the paddling community.
She’s creative, hard-working and dedicated to growing a business that brings harmony to humans and nature!
Maree’s favourite Quote “If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin” – Ivan Turgenev
Having been land based for all of Tim’s fitness regimes he was curious to try Stand Up Paddle boarding. Once he tried it he was hooked! Tim then became an ASI accredited instructor because he wanted to help others enjoy the activity as much as he does.
Tim gets a real buzz from seeing client’s confidence and skills improve after each lesson and then encouraging them along to a SUP tour, twilight paddle or even helping them get their four-legged friends on board at our Pups on Sups sessions.
There is no doubt that Tim has a way with people. His sense of humour and quick wit entertains our clients and the crew making our classes so much fun!
Tim’s a valued member of our SUP Tonic team sharing his love of exercise, the outdoors and our beautiful Swan River.
His favourite quote: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans” – John Lennon
