Full Moon Paddle

This class is taught by:

Fraser Kersey

With a career centered around inspiring appreciation of the environment through developing and supporting innovative businesses that build a better world, Fraser’s love of nature has been woven through all facets of his life. Fraser grew up in and on vastly different waters around the country. Summers spent on the Gulf of Mexico and winters in the North Atlantic. Fraser worked as a lifeguard for 5 seasons. He coached swimming, lacrosse, and CPR/First-Aid courses throughout that time as well. He landed in Santa Barbara mid-way through college, and working as a kayak guide seemed to be the next logical fit. After 4 seasons guiding in the Channel Islands National Park, Fraser explored the idea of making a large-scale positive environmental impact by taking a position with ECOBAGS as the VP of Business Development, started his own consulting business focusing on sustainable development. When preparing to begin graduate school, Fraser received a message to journey to Peru, living in and exploring the Amazon.

In 2010, The Channel Islands called Fraser to return and reconnect, since then he has been happy to lead people through one of the most remarkable places on Earth. Fraser co-founded Channel Islands Outfitters with Garrett Kababik. In 2014 Fraser was certified by the Academy of Surfing Instructors to train stand-up paddle board instructors. During this time he worked to certify Channel Islands Outfitters as an accredited Academy of Surfing Instructors and Stand-Up Paddle board (SUP) school. Channel Islands Outfitters is a guide-owned and operated company dedicated to saving the oceans and natural places by fostering an understanding of them through education, adventures and outdoor experiences.
