So I did OK in the DaHui Ho he'e Nalu July 4th, 102nd out of 363 SUPs. 6th in age/class. Which only makes me want to train harder...to wit this DW lesson from Robert Stehlik, owner of Blue Planet. Robert is a great racer & instructor, check out the vid he took & put together of Dalbert & I on our DW lesson on www.zenwaterman.com There's nothing like video to help you see what you're doing wrong.
Am getting ready for the Sept. 15 Block Island Paddle. As a happy bay paddler, doing an ocean crossing will be a little daunting. But since I'll be with friends, it will be awesome. All for charity. P4H.org, and my team is Pirate Rox 2012 if you'd like to donate.
