Rob and Michelle Malloy started up a small business three years ago as the first Stand Up Paddle operation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Rob, a life long surfer, enjoyed the flexibility of standing up to surf in the Atlantic. After retiring from his software business in Gaithersburg MD he and his wife Michelle moved to the Outer Banks as full time residents to relax and found the unique opportunity to share his love of this growing sport with summer residents and vacationers.
