Bio

Believe it or not, April Zilg didn’t grow up an athlete; in fact, she was quite the opposite. While in graduate school working on her Master’s, she realized she was spending too much time behind a desk and decided it wasn’t where she wanted to end up for the rest of her life.
Thankfully, she discovered a sport that allowed her to be outdoors and on the water that she fell in love with at first try: stand-up paddleboarding. With time, her love for SUPing grew which led her to make better healthy lifestyle choices and evolve into a competitive athlete.
Today, April is a nationally-recognized SUP athlete and Hobie Team Rider, competing in both SUP Racing and SUP Surfing. Shes held down the #10 spot in the world rankings for 2 years running, has top 10 finishes in Carolina Cup and the Pacific Paddle Games, and a 4th in the 2016 EuroTour.
In between competitions, April is a WPA-certified SUP instructor, an ACA-certified “L2 Essentials of SUP” instructor, and a SUP yoga instructor, and passes along her knowledge and love for SUPing through her teachings.
