Dave Burden

Department: International
Title: International Paddlesports Ambassador
Phone: 540-907-4460

As a professional kayak guide and expedition leader for over 20 years, Dave has paddled all across the country and around the world (including guiding rafts in Iraq - see photo). His list of favorite paddling destinations includes New Zealand, China, Baja, Maine, and the San Blas Islands of Panama. Of course he’ll insist that no place in the world can measure up to the marshes, barrier islands, and coastal creeks of the Eastern Shore of Virginia where he is on the water every chance he gets.

Dave is the primary point of contact for paddlesport events and programming outside of the United States.

He is also an ACA certified Level 4: Open Water Coastal Kayaking Instructor & a Level 2: Essentials of SUP Instructor.
