SUP on the ocean is definitely trending … “Moving from lake paddling to ocean involves an entirely different requirement of skill, knowledge, strength and equipment,” says Suzie Cooney
She has taught hundreds the art of SUPing downwind and her fitness students include SUP Elite stars such as Connor Baxter and Kody Kerbox.
I’m a native of Northern California, now living in Maui 17 years, and can’t wait to visit the Bay Area and share the stoke of stand up paddling. It’s really amazing how it’s growing so fast there with all of the great water ways and easy access. There’s something for everyone even if you’re just beginning in the sport.
Also, I have dreamed up a few cool tee shirt designs that reflect my vision and feeling of the Maliko Run. Here are a few samples for you to see: There are three (3) fun collections. The Bump Hunter, The Downwind Paddling Cow, and our Logo Maliko Run of Maui
Remember, preparing for a SUP race, your first or 20th; requires mental preparation, a mental course map, clarity, having a plan for the unexpected and so much more.
I love teaching courses with Jeremy Riggs. Together we provide an incredible venue for those eager to increase their downwind paddling skills from technique, strength training and water safety. Connecting people to Maliko is what we do, making them great paddlers is what we enjoy.
