Chaz founded Flatwater Paddle Co. (formerly known as Greenwood Lake Paddleboards) out of a marina on Greenwood Lake in 2013. Chaz is a pro paddler for Bishop Boards and spends most of his paddling time on Southeast rivers, and inland reservoirs of New York and New Jersey. Chaz has instructed hundreds of lessons and feels most at home running Flatwater Paddle Co.’s intro to SUP programs on Monksville reservoir in New Jersey.
