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.

Paddlewoo Returns!

Paddlewoo Returns!

You can subscribe to the podcast on Stitcher or iTunes.

I am stoked to announce that the Paddlewoo Podcast has returned!  And there’s going to be some changes coming…  In this episode I’m joined by Chase Kosterlitz – we’re catching up on my last trip to Costa Rica and we discuss Blue Zone, which Chase is now leading, what he’s learned coaching, the J stroke, and the future of the Paddlewoo podcast.

We’ll be releasing a few episodes every month.  I will be continuing to explore surfing, learning and with the addition of board design and construction, and Chase will focus on racing and the lifestyle of SUP.

For more info on Blue Zone Sup check out our website here, and to check out the Barra shape from Portal Surf Designs click here.

Stay tuned for a great year!
