Our Team

Jarrod Covington

Owner & Founder

Born in Beaufort, NC, Jarrod Covington has spent his life on the water. Although surfing and windsurfing were constants in that childhood, his interests quickly expanded to include kiteboarding, paddle boarding, fishing, and a great deal more.

Covington graduated from UNC Wilmington with a degree in Finance, but ever loyal to the southeastern coast, he walked away from the corporate grind. Forecasting the potential for sup growth in the area, he founded Wrightsville SUP in 2011. The business has thrived on Covington’s own dynamic and multi-faceted interests and now facilitates rentals and lessons in a variety of water sports and activities.
