The Wrightsville Beach Paddle Club, LLC was set up by a small group of paddlers who wanted to foster the local, regional and national community of stand up paddlers. The idea was to take the events out of the hands of individual surf shops and brands in order open the door to all surf/sup shops and brands.

Board Members:

Mark Schmidt: Owner, Schmidt Custom Builders. Mark is a surfer and paddler, husband and father who lives and works in Wilmington, NC.

Brand Howard: Owner of Howard Building Supply in WIlmington, NC. Lifelong surfer, stand up paddler and most likely to blow something up.

James Bain: Owner of Epic Food Company, Fast, Fresh Food in Wilmington, NC. If you don’t like James’ cooking, you need to see a doctor. James’ 3 boys are the next generation of SUPremacy.
