"Training with Evelyn really made a difference in not only my races, but in my spirit.  She shares her knowledge, pushes you beyond what you thought you could do, and keeps you motivated to show up again.  Her coaching is some of the finest you will get on the East Coast.  And with the goals I have set for the upcoming year, I can’t wait to work with her again.  Whether it’s yoga, TRX, surfing or paddling, Evelyn’s coaching and teaching will get you to a better version of yourself."  -- Roxane Robinson, SUP Racer

"I have been lucky to have been introduced to Evelyn and spend time training with her this fall. I immediately felt a great connection to Evelyn as we share a love for this sport and a true passion for the water.

Evelyn has her own special brand of magic as a trainer, her great understanding of technique and application of it, her extensive knowledge  in equipment,   and  the workings of muscle groups in relation to paddling ,  along with her inspiring kindness make her quite a dynamic force! 

Most importantly,  Evelyn has the ability to" see right through you" with a knowing of how to develop you. Evelyn is true teacher at heart and her love for teaching her students is very apparent.  I have great respect and appreciation for Evelyn and all that she is and all that she has done for this sport. Evelyn is someone who can help you reach your full potential."  -- Maureen R.

"Evelyn O'Doherty is a woman of many talents. She is highly skilled as a  yoga & meditation teacher, and a surfing and SUP instructor. Most of all she is a woman with a huge open heart. This combination of heart and skill enables her students to take their own steps towards empowerment. Being coached for my first SUP race by Ev has taken me to a new level. I'm finally paddling in the ocean and attempting to ride small waves!"   --Roey Ficaro LCSW, RYT
