SUP ‘n’ Surf Retreats for Veterans with Jim Bartelloni, USNA ’90

Nov 22, 2019 | USNA

Jim “Bart” Bartelloni (USNA ’90) is a Naval Academy graduate and former Rugby player. He cut his teeth in the military as a Naval Aviator, flying F-14s and graduating from the US Navy Fighter Weapons School (Top Gun). The opportunity to relocate to San Diego brought the chance to learn stand up paddle (SUP) surfing. After attending a SUP ‘n’ Surf retreat he made the decision to bring this opportunity to veterans with the hope they enjoy the same unique experience as he did.

In this episode, Jim and I discuss:

  • How SUP boarding can help military veterans with PTSD
  • Lessons learned from starting a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization
  • Pro tips for catching a wave on a SUP board 😊
