Our Staff

Chris Strout:

A Maine native, Chris and has been paddling since he was a young teenager.  A professional guide since 2002 he and has become one of the most experienced and knowledgeable paddling guides in the area.   What started out as a passion for kayaking became an obssession with stand up paddling and it was this obsession that led him to start Acadia SUP in 2011.  Chris is unique in being the first local instructor in the area and is often referred to as the "paddleboard guy."  He is excited to share his passion and love of paddling, the ocean, natural history, and the MDI area with you.

Alex Taylor:

A native of South Florida, Alex learned to swim before she could walk, and has loved water sports ever since! She is a certified scuba diver, worked as a kayak tour guide in Key West, and takes any opportunity to jump in the water (as long as it's not too cold!) When Alex first tried SUP, she was instantly hooked.  Alex spends the winters in LA with her husband and dog Tasman, but has been spending the summers on MDI since she was 4 years old, and there is no where else she would rather be. She is so excited to bring together all of the things she loves through SUP and SUP yoga.
