“If you want to be as strong as the ocean demands.. it starts in the mind and on land first.” ..”.We talked about the importance of being an ocean and reef, and Maui ambassador and the important responsibility that goes with it, along with the many different ways one can lead by example. As a rule I always spend 15 minutes before or after I play or work on the ocean, picking up trash and plastic. I stressed it is simply a way of life now that we must all do our part.”
This year that mentality switched for me & my goal was to drop 2 waves! In my first heat this perfect set wave came to me & something just clicked inside me & I just turned & went with out hesitation.

Inspirational Video Spinning With Change And The Lesson I Learned to Shift My Mind to Feel Free and Let Go
I write today to inspire, reveal and share that while the waves keep rolling in and rolling out, so do people, dreams and things that were once thought as permanent.

While I strive to understand that letting go of attachment is ideal, I’m also learning that when I can accept this more easily and put it to practice, change will also become easier. This does help my mind to shift and get unstuck and to let go of things, circumstances, people, the past and future events all of which I cannot control.

Ciguatera is more and more common now as our oceans become more toxic. Educate yourself and tell all of your friends, family and physicians. The #mindwinsfirst and our health is our wealth. Aloha, Suzie Cooney

My personal goal to podium in the Masters Division came to me in Oct 2017 (after Dad won the 18 gold metals). Someone asked me, “why the H#@ll would you do that?” I thought for a second and responded, “I don’t think its ever been done before.” That was my answer lol.
