Sammer Elias

Washington, USA

Sammer Elias has spent the majority of the last 12 years absorbed in the natural world. His passions for his personal life and for his professional life are much the same. Sammer divides his time in his career with; captaining sailing expeditions while teaching personal growth and character development to students of all ages and walks of life; teaching outdoor leadership, team leadership, and community leadership; and teaching the technical skills of water-based activities including sailing, navigation, river rescue, and whitewater paddling. When not leading or teaching, in his personal time Sammer is focused on his passions of whitewater paddling, ocean sailing, surfing in Latin America, and being with people of foreign cultures. However, above all, are family and friends. When it comes to whitewater canoeing, Sammer has been pushing the boundaries of the sport in the western U.S. for several years. Though having paddled many rivers that have earned him a first canoe descent (many he was not aware of until much later), Sammer paddles for himself. You can often find him on his daily evening excursion, paddling alone on a challenging river.
Pursuing a life of adventure, great experiences, joy and meaning... Sammer is very happy with life. He has a deep connection to water, and always enjoys sharing readings and quotes with friends.
