A new company for us, a new (to us) van and caravan (travel trailer) to call "home" and a new website, complete with a BLOG! YIKES! So much new in our lives to keep us young and active! We call it an ADVENTURE!
Deciding to call it quits on a job and lifestyle that has been quite "comfy" for the past 10 years has been a real adventure, to say the least! Needless to say we are excited about the future!
Our plan to travel the USA this year teaching SUP to anyone wanting to learn how fun and rewarding this new sport can be is our dream. I have always envisioned a lifestyle of traveling and paddling and now it's becoming a reality. Thanks to lots of help and support from our partners and a lot of hard work we are just about ready to "blast off".
We plan on using this blog to update our fans on a number of aspects of our lives worth sharing. We plan on doing a number of educational pieces that will get you excited about this new sport called SUP!
Standing and balancing on a wide surf board while pushing and pulling on a long canoe paddle to move about on water sounds and IS fairly easy to do. Mastering all the different aspects of the sport is quite challenging! That's where Shellback comes in.
Having experienced literally decades of different paddlesport educational opportunities has taught us a boatload of tricks that make this journey to SUP mastery possible in a short amount of time.
Finding great places to paddle our SUPs is always a focus of ours. We plan on doing a number of posts on "Cool, local paddling ops near YOU". As we travel around the country we hope to find and report on these easy to access venues.
With all of the different folks we work with sharing ideas and techniques we also plan on sharing some of this information here.
We will also be doing some equipment reviews, looking at the different pieces of gear that add to SUP safety and enjoyment. One of the things that is cool about SUP is the simplicity. Looking at most magazine ads one would think that a board, paddle and pair of board shorts or bikini is all that's needed. yeah.... right. we'll take a look at what works in the real world!
