- Paddle Canada Basic Sea Kayak Instructor
- Paddle Canada Level 1 Sea Kayak skills
August started kayaking as a camper in Texas 13 years ago, and transitioned into instructing once she became a full counselor. Working on the camp’s Lake Livingston, she got hooked on being on the water and since moving to Vancouver to study in 2017, was interested in gaining more ocean kayak experience. This past year she finally did it, and started instructing and working as the rental manager at Jericho Beach. She’s excited to work outside and on the water and meet all sorts of cool new people this summer!
