    Hi, I’m going to be in the San Francisco Bay Area from July 10 to August 5. I’m a Level 3 Pasa and an IKO L1. I’m teaching in Maui from June 1 to July 1 and then to No Cal. I have experience teaching from Jet Ski’s and have taught in the Gorge for several years as well.
    Let me know if that time frame works.
