Small-business selfie winner: Rob Bennett of My Aloha Paddle and Surf in Lake Norman

“(We’ve) been introducing residents of Charlotte and tourists to the awesome sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding since 2010,” writes Rob Bennett, owner of My Aloha Paddle and Surf. “My Aloha Paddle and Surf has two locations, but the new waterfront location on West Catawba Avenue in Cornelius is amazing. Paddleboard lessons, rentals, sales and even paddleboard yoga (on) a floating yoga mat.”

Bennett’s other location is in Mooresville. He says the business has sold more than 1,200 paddleboards and hosts annual charity races, too. Learn more about lessons at

For giving us a look into his showroom, we’re sending Bennett a ShopTalk travel mug. Send us your selfie, and you could win a travel mug, too. Use your mobile device to take candid photos of yourself in your business, showing off what you do in your environment. You can ask someone to take photos of you, too, but we don’t want professional shots. We’re looking for candids that capture the selfie spirit.
