TL;DR: #isaworlds sprints were a blast! 🤙💥🕺🏼💦
It's pretty crazy to think that 3 months ago, I didn't know what "bumps" or "dugouts" meant, nor did I knew anything about racing a SUP. I was in #tofino and thought I'd sign up for the races there just for kicks ( and to mess with @colinrobinsun@chicotinto@sixfootrider & T-bone Wade)... never thinking I'd walk out of it Canadian Sprint champion and qualified for Worlds 😱
It's been a crazy ride dusting off @robstott65 old C-1 200m programs and relentlessly testing new @blackfish_paddles sizes, shapes and length to find the perfect set up. -
While most of my SUP racing knowledge was taught to me by William & Lil Joe (my 11 & 10(?) personal coaches), I've got to throw a quick shout out to David Smart, @tbudayjr, @aleutian_sup, @cspotzl (those #💸bumps), @bennett.jason, @normhann & everyone in the BC SUP scene who have helped me in one way or another to get the chance to break the local water speed laws with the best paddlers in the world, in front of the Copenhagen Opera House. 🙌🤙 It's been one hell of an intro to this epic sport!
Seriously though, what's next? 😅
