Since 2014, Sam Eastburn has been teaching San Diegans how to captain their stand-up paddleboards alongside their furry first-mates through her company SUP Pups. While Eastburn’s doggy paddleboarding lessons were formerly an extension of The SUP Connection, a Liberty Station SUP rental company, this year Eastburn decided to stretch her company’s wings and fly solo.

“Every year I’ve gotten busier and busier,” said Eastburn, who has hosted private lessons for human-dog duos, as well as for dog birthdays and has even partnered with non-profits like the San Diego Rhodesian Ridgeback Club and San Diego Pittie Parents for special paddleboarding events. “Now I want to see how much my business can grow.”

Originally from Arizona, Eastburn moved to San Diego in 2013, already having visited Campland on the Bay every year for family vacations since she was 5 years old. Eastburn started working at San Diego Bay Adventures as a jet ski tour guide. After getting her certification to become a paddleboarding instructor, Eastburn started SUP Pups, offering lessons to those who want to learn to paddleboard with their dogs. The business was inspired by Eastburn’s own lab-mix rescue, Jack.

“I took him out with me right after I got certified and he absolutely loved it,” said Eastburn. “He’s such a little fisherman, and he uses the board as his little boat. It’s hilarious. He’ll just stare into the water as we paddle, looking for fish.”

Sup Pups started as a “casual meet-up” between Eastburn and her clients, but as interest grew, Eastburn reached out to The SUP Connection, who hired Eastburn to manage the rentals while also being the new home for SUP Pups. For the last five years, Eastburn has introduced the sport of paddleboarding to blind, deaf and three-legged dogs.

“I also took out a deaf cat once,” said Eastburn.

But now, the young entrepreneur has decided it’s time to grow outside of The SUP Connection nest.

“I actually want to franchise SUP Pups,” said Eastburn. “Say you’re a paddle-boarder in Texas and you want to do SUP Pups. I want to have a whole online program that will certify you to become a paddleboard instructor for SUP Pups.”

“The guys at The SUP Connection have been like father figures to me, but I wanted to go back to my roots and why I did this in the first place,” she added. “It wasn’t about rentals or working in a warehouse. It was about SUP Pups.”

Now its own LLC, SUP Pups will be adding not only online certification to their business, but also more fundraising events such as promoting foster dogs who are up for adoption. Eastburn also wants to start an SUP Pups Dog Day Adventure camp, based in San Diego.

“Sam has a true gift of connecting with people and dogs of all walks of life,” said local Alycia Cardona, who took a SUP Pup lesson with her bulldog mix Bluebelle. “Sam has a lot to offer and I am truly excited for all of her upcoming endeavors. Her love for water is contagious and she has a natural talent for making anyone feel comfortable. Bluebelle and I have turned into lifetime SUPers.”

Having worked with all sorts of disabled pets, as well as dogs with severe water anxiety, Eastburn also has the dream to write her own children’s book, the story narrated through the perspective of her dog, Jack.

“I want to write a book that shows kids they can get out there and do anything despite their disabilities or being scared,” said Eastburn, who has helped both dogs and their owners get over the fear of trying something new.

“I look back and laugh at the first message I sent her because I gave her every excuse in the world,” said Cardona. "I’m overweight, bad bones, have no experience, I will sink the board, I don’t know if my dog can swim… You name it, I said it. Sam never once hesitated to schedule with me. She has a special way of taking away your insecurities.”

With her new Chevy van and freshly bought paddleboard, Eastburn will continue to offer lessons at Liberty Station, and hopefully soon Fiesta Island. Individual SUP Pup lessons are offered Monday through Sunday and cost $65-$115. To schedule, visit the SUP Pup’s Instagram: @sup_pups.

Hello everyone, my name is Veronika Santos, I'm a member of the New World Order (Illuminati), am not here to give testimonies on how I joined the brotherhood but to sincerely apologies to those that are victims to these fake agents in different part of the world using our identities for fraud.

These are what they do, they will contact our agents across the globe pretending to be an applicant, after given them the procedures, terms and conditions on how to be a member of the brotherhood they will block our agents and use that same procedures to fraud you guys by broadcasting on internet things that doesn't exist in the brotherhood such as paying salaries to our members, giving dreams cars to all new members and the worth of the car, a V I P treatment in all airports in the world, one month booked appointment with top 5 world leaders and top 5 celebrities in the world ETC all these are fake. Please note this, am not disputing the fact that the illuminati brotherhood don't give benefits to their newly initiated members, We do but not as exorbitant these fake agents paint it to be but a trap to stuck and suck you guys be wise to identify these tricks. Note this, to be a member  of the illuminati is free, you're not paying  for so called registration/initiation fee, membership ID card fee, certificate fee ETC all these are free, you're only going to be initiated into the brotherhood by any of our initiators not agent. Another point to note is that initiation into the brotherhood doesn't involves human blood sacrifices and anyone who tells you he/she is the Grand master or gives you a contact that you have to chat with the Grand master is fake the Grand master don't chat with applicants, you can only meet with the Grand master when you are invited to the headquarter 3 months after your initiation into the brotherhood for your awarding ceremony with the twelve heads of executives for your oath.

 If you have been a victim please or you want to no more detail on how you can be a member of the illuminati brotherhood in your country, via whatsApp 14434187380 or via Email: templeofthebrotherhood@gmail.com

My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2011, but was diagnosed in 2013. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn't walk without a walker or a power chair, i had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then i decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Akanni herbal centre t, It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit www. akanniherbalcentre .com). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others.

How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.Wealthy Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: wealthylovespell@gmail.com. or whatsapp him on: 2348105150446
