Fun waves, Converted Nancy and Gerry to the Dark Side

Fun little waves this morning from the easterly push and the Low that was east of the Islands a few days ago.... SUP heaven.. Great to get back in the surf on the SUP. Too much flat water paddling you loose balance and you go stale..
Jesse on my PSH throwing the turn , yea baby..

80 ft ferry sends a wave at 4:30 everyday..

"Spirit of Harbour Town'' is an 80 ft ferry that sends a wake wave beside the pier. The wake waves wedges up along the wall and if in the right spot you get a little knee high wave to glide on . A series of 4-5 waves every afternoon at 4:30 pm when the boat arrives from its daily excursions..
.... where is that boat?

Gotta love 'walking on water'

Made the cover of Hilton Head Monthly June issue. Sharing my passion and enthusiasm of SUP with all. Honored to be an ambassador for the sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding, H20 Sports, Hilton Head's paddle board community, Sea Pines Resort and Hilton Head Island. I love
to share SUP surfing with the world starting with my little town. I'm very passionate about this fastest growing water sport. My reward are the many smiles on the faces of all the friends I've made thru Stand Up the last 3-4 years, all the clients from past lessons and hearing exciting descriptions of their Paddle Surfing experiences knowing I've made an impact on their live.
My mission personal statement is:
Paddle toward the future, one stroke at a time....
''' Thank you to all who have entered my life, allowing me to share my passion making and impact on their lives. ''
