Welcome to Jungle Sup! I'm Thomas, the proud owner of this thrilling stand-up paddleboarding venture. With my expertise as an L2 SUP instructor and beach lifeguard, I guide enthusiasts through the world of paddleboarding while ensuring their safety. As a dedicated personal trainer, I also help individuals lead healthier lifestyles. In winter, I work as a snowboard instructor, always seeking joy in every experience. Whether gliding on tranquil waters, conquering snowy mountains, or embracing nature's beauty, my unwavering passion for life drives me.
