Rhonda has been kayaking since 1997 and is certified as a BCU Coach Level 2 and 4 Star Sea Certification, and ACA Certificated instructor Level Four, Open Water and Surf. Other interests have been backpacking and technical rock climbing but now she spends almost every weekend on the waters of Puget Sound.
During the summer she will lead trips to places like Nootka or Desolation Sound, BC. Rhonda enjoys paddling in the San Juan’s and on the coast of Washington; however, her favorite playground is Deception Pass. Rhonda teaches sea kayaking classes for many groups. When not on the water you’ll find her at home in Gig Harbor, or in her shop repairing kayaks or taking care of her husband Chris Smith and three dogs, Shiz Tzu’s (Ebby and Rip Tide) and Lab (Cooper)
