Tom Whittemore is a Water Sports Instructor who offers classes on windsurfing, sailing, water polo and other activities that can be enjoyed on the water or at the beach.
A longtime water sports athlete, Tom Whittemore has competed nationally in sailing, surfing and water polo events. An avid ocean traveler, he has set sail from beaches on the East Coast to enjoy voyages on his sailboat. Whittemore is currently preparing for a three-day voyage, which he will enjoy with a crew of family and friends. Traveling from one East Coast beach to another, his crew plan to visit small islands in the Atlantic Ocean. (Naturally, the Digital Photographer plans to document the adventures in a photo series!) Outside of his own water sports adventures, Whittemore imparts the skill set on other adventurers by offering an array of water sports lessons. He currently teaches beginner level instruction on how to surf, how to sail and how to play water polo.
