Good long paddle yesterday slowly getting there with only 2 weeks to go until the first of the UK Paddle Endurance Series races still not where I'd like to be. The 20 minute shower was welcomed half way through but not the breeze that came to stay. Enjoying being back on the SIC X14prolite in the flat water, nice easy glide!
One more SUP pic for the week because it was so freaking amazing out there this morning 🙌 Off tomorrow and then storms on the way, so might be a land warrior weekend, but this morning's #dawnpatrol was awesome.

I am one lucky, blessed, happy, and grateful girl! 😍 3 awesome things about this morning:
1. It was supposed to be thunderstorming and instead, it’s gorgeous out!
2. My training partner is back and motivated to paddle! He even tried surfing the OC for the first time.
3. I finally got to try my new @puakeadesigns OC paddle and it’s rad!
My heart is swelling. I had such a fun morning on the water. 7 miles of up breeze grind, down breeze bumps. Actually I could think of an endless amount of positive things about this morning. Life is not always rainbows and butterflies, but that’s the part I focus on and share with the world. #goodvibesonly#lifeisgood#countyourblessings#gratitude#grateful#thankyou#standuppaddle @sicmaui #boundbywater#outrigger#oc1#ehukai @pdlmnstr #training#trainingworks#melbournebeach
I've been blessed. Massive Mahalo @sicmaui for yet another season of adventures. Salut @markraaphorst for the amazing board design. Stoked to hop onto the RS when it got here. Thank you @overboardbags UK for keeping my gears dry through the wet season! @tailwindnutritionuk for keeping me going - them caffeinated mix is da bomb! And @enthdegreeinternational for keeping me warm with Fenotherm3. Can't thank you guys and girls enough for the support and the fun that comes with this sport. You know who you are! And a special thank you to @rrodin of @funsportvanvliet for being there from the start to chat and paddle in the local lake where our local surf shack is. Let's get on the water!! #boundbywater#funsportvanvliet#sicmaui#supracer#stand_up_paddle

The awesome women of Camp Crystal Kai raced for the first time ever at Crystal Kai SUP Cup this weekend. For some in the group, this week was the first time they ever stood on a board and Camp Crystal Kai paddler Sarah Mak took 1st place in the 18-49 short course 12.6 division. Congrats to all!👏 #boundbywater#sicmaui#campcrystalkai#saltyadventures#nrs#mtiadventurewear
Just watching the water and Waves upside down on an @sicmaui 🙃 Have you heard the story about the man who tried to control the waves? Having decided some waves were good and others were bad, he stood on the shoreline for years trying to push away the bad waves and keep the good waves from disintegrating . .
Finally he sat down and just allowed the waves to come and go. And he suddenly felt so at peace! .
It is the same with our thoughts, emotions, and life in general. We cannot take the good without the bad. You cannot have light without shadow or day without night. Yes, it’s nice to “think positively!” but ignoring more shadowy thoughts isn’t going to stop them from coming up. So instead embrace both! It’s when we are quiet and allow the natural rhythms of day and night, happy and sad, that we find peace ....

Today is race day and for some of the ladies, the Crystal Kai SUP Cup is the event they have been working towards. For many in the group, this week was the first time they ever stood on a board, took a paddleboard instruction class, did SUP Yoga, SUP fishing, paddle a downwinder, paddled distance or paddled in ocean environment with the wind, current and waves. Anna and I will let the ladies take the lead at the race and we will paddle alongside them for support. Good luck Camp Crystal Kai! 45, 48, 50, 54, 56, and 73 never looked better!
