About Us

Hey! My name is Christian Soto and I am 21 years old living in Pinellas County ,FL. I have been skimboarding since I was 6 years old. That was when I moved from Orlando to the beautiful sandy shores of Pinellas County . I decided to start teaching lessons when I moved back home from college in Deerfield Beach as a way to increase income in these trying times and give others a new skill or help perfect an old one. While living down there I worked at Island Watersports and taught Surfing and Skimboarding lessons through their shop. Now being back at home from college at FAU and working at Nekton Surf Shop, I have decided to start my own business offering affordable private and semi-private skimboarding and surfing lessons to all of Pinellas. I have experience working with young children being a former substitute teacher for Pinellas County schools and working with children from kindergarten all the way through seniors in high school.

I am currently still an online student at Florida Atlantic University graduating with my Bachelors in Business Administration with a Minor in Hospitality. My passion for the ocean started when I moved here and never left me now as an adult wanting to teach my passion to all and help bring positivity to this new world we are all navigating.
