Hi, my name is Erik, and the progression project is the warehouse for my projects. I’m passionate about family, surfing, designing surfboards, the learning process, coaching, promoting paddle surfing and sharing my stoke…
This site has been the conduit to some of my best friends and opportunities. So, please reach out and let me know what resonates.
It’s been a couple years in the making, but this week, ahead of the best forecast I’ve seen on the East Coast of Florida, Hans Wagner and I hop on the podcast to discuss the ESSC Contest Series and the ON call for next weekend. Hans is a passionate paddle surfer and like me came into paddle surfing as a lifelong surfer. The surfer background permeates his paddling philosophy and our discussion starts off with the swell forecast and details on the event but then turns into board design, the benefits of being a paddle surfer, and what board to ride for what conditions.
Enjoy and I hope we see you at the contest on March 10th!
