Sea kayaking the Inside Passage is Susan Conrad’s jam, having completed two approximately 1,200-mile solo through-paddles from Washington State to SE Alaska. She has authored three books about the Inside Passage and loves sharing her personal stories on stages big and small not only to inspire people but to demonstrate the power of self-belief and tenacity in order to accomplish anything you want to in life. She’s happiest with a paddle, a camera, a notepad, or a book in her hands. She’ll be sharing her story and images of her recent solo paddle from San Juan Island to Sitka, Alaska.
