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.

Chase Kosterlitz Podcast – Chase Joins Blue Zone SUP!!!

Chase Kosterlitz Podcast – Chase Joins Blue Zone SUP!!!

 

Chase Kosterlitz, best known from his accolades in the SUP racing world has joined us on the Blue Zone SUP team and will be coaching in Costa Rica this year starting in November. Chase is also an incredible surfer and I’m pumped to have him on the team as his skillset in paddling, surfing and coaching will be a huge asset. His path to surfing is different from both Oscar, our other coach, and mine, in that Chase started as a racer and then moved into surfing four years ago. That’s the path that about 50% of our guests are taking and the strategic move to bring on Chase is to be able to communicate more effectively with our racing/touring clientele.

On this episode of the podcast we discuss how we met in the Bahamas this year at the JP dealer meeting, how flow has impacted our lives and how surfing is the highest form of flow we’ve yet discovered, and we get to know Chase and his athletic background.

Email us at erik@progressionproject.com to reserve your spot for the upcoming season, availability starts in late November and we’re running through April.
