With a passion for the ocean and paddlesports,  along with a vast and skilled history of coaching, team management, and  competitive athletic backgrounds, Mike Eisert and Jaime Donnelly-Eisert have created The Paddle Academy. With the goal of “passing on the traditions, lifestyle and culture of paddlesports through experienced instruction and passionate mentoring,” we invite you to be a part of an incredible connection and lifestyle on the water!


Based out of Doheny State Beach in picturesque Dana Point, California, the “hub” of stand up paddleboarding, our training location has been selected for its safe beach entry yet diverse setting. We offer training in open ocean and flatwater, making our programs suitable for all ages and skill levels. We promise you will feel inspired and challenged with every Paddle Academy experience!


The Paddle Academy offers a variety of  programming, from Junior SUP Development Programs to one-on-one race prep training. Reach out and get on the water today!
