About Mountain Surf Paddle Sports

Our story

Mountain Surf Paddle Sports was started in 2015 by Meghan Fisher. Meghan, an outdoor enthusiast and professional outdoor guide was first introduced to paddleboarding in 2009 while living in Hong Kong. Upon moving back to the States she moved to West Virginia to guide white water rafting trips.  It became apparent to Meghan that there was a need for a paddleboard instructor and quality paddleboard equipment in the New River Gorge region of West Virginia. Meghan took an ACA course to become a certified paddleboard instructor, resigned from her raft guiding position as well as her high school teaching position, and followed her passion to start her own paddleboard business. Built on passion and sustained by giving a quality product with a personal touch, this small business continues to thrive. 

In 2023 Meghan sold to Shannon Peffley, Shannon is an avid adventurer with an insatiable love for the great outdoors. Whether it's exploring the rugged mountains, diving into exhilarating white water rafting trips, or gracefully gliding across serene waters on a paddleboard, Shannon finds solace and excitement in nature's playground. Alongside his passion for outdoor activities, Shannon has also embraced the practice of yoga and runs Adventure retreats in the New River Gorge. With an unwavering spirit of exploration and a deep appreciation for the wonders of nature, Shannon embodies the true essence of an outdoor enthusiast.
