Meet the Isthmus Team

Sales Manager - Jon Massmann

I've been windsurfing for 40 years. I continue to learn new skills, experience new locations, test new equipment and witness first hand how the sport continues to evolve and improve. Windsurfing is such an empowering sport where thrills, excitement, learning and the adrenaline rush continue to keep me stoked to get out and ride. This sport keeps you young at heart and meeting and riding with incredible like minded thrill seekers. My favorite windsurfing locations are Maui, West Coast, Caribbean and the Great Lakes region.

Customer Service & Ops Manager - Patrick Skemp

Handling warranties, order processing, Int'l shipping, general invoice/sales record keeping duties and website maintenance Patrick is old enough to remember when you first had to tie your boom to the mast. He has been fortunate to sail in some beautiful places in the world like Margarita/Coche Island Venezuela, Los Barriles/La Ventana Baja, Cabarete, DR, Crissy Field San Francisco and of course the Gorge. When it is not windy you can find him on his road bicycle in the summer and nordic skiing in the winters.

Warehouse Manager - Dirk Hooks

Dirk is the Isthmus Sailboards warehouse manager & has had the surf stoke since '83. A Sconnie local, he can be found carving a snowboard when the water's solid, and probably in his waders or a fishing boat when it's not windy. Lake Mendota & the Great Lakes are favorite playgrounds.  

Owner - Steve Newton

I was lucky enough to grow up on the water and I love everything outdoors.
Windsurfing is one of my favorites.  If I'm not on the water, you'll find me on the slopes or with my kids on some other outdoor adventure.
