Why I love to SUP and how I discovered it…
I love to SUP because it brings me into a state of harmony, happiness and balance. When I’m standup paddleboarding I’m vibrantly alive and present with my body, my mind, the water, the sky, with all life. I love the versatility of the sport – from practicing SUP Yoga, to prone paddling, surfing, fitness or flatwater cruising, paddleboarding brings everything I’m passionate about together on any available body of water. Technically, standup paddling is everything that I love about surfing. It’s both physically challenging and mentally calming. The moment my feet touch the board, a smile comes to my face and I feel free. There are few experiences more enjoyable.
The body of water you’ll most likely find me on…
Beautiful Jordan Lake State Park, NC or the Pacific Ocean in my native Santa Cruz, California.
Which boards I’m riding? Which one is my favorite? …
I’m smitten with just about every board HALA makes. But if I had to choose a favorite, it’d be the Carbon Playa.
My next dream paddling adventure is…
The Maui to Molokai race in Hawaii….a girl can dream.
What I do when I am not paddling?
Study photography, practice yoga, surf, knit mostly scarves… (lots and lots of them), vegan recipe hunt, adventure in our airstream (or plan adventures!), ballroom dance with my other half, and entertain our 2 golden doodle kids.
