|Del Mar Junior Lifeguards Wish Turtle an Epic Race!|
From Turtle -
Paddleboarding is a great sport - I feel very fortunate every time I head out for a paddle! Also, because of paddleboarding, I have met a lot of great friends, traveled to Australia, Fiji and all over California to compete, and seen all kinds of marine life. I can always find some peace of mind out in the ocean.
I have been wanting to cross the Molokai channel for about 10 years now.
|Out in the California bumps, dreaming of Molokai and wishing for warm water? :)|
It finally all worked out this year, and I have enjoyed the whole process leading up to the race or my “adventure” as I have been calling it! Well, almost the entire process, there have been some COLD miserable paddles along the way this year in California!
I have had a lot of fun with my paddling/training partner Shannon Delaney and a lot of support from my friends and the guys and gals at work (Del Mar Lifeguard/Junior Lifeguard Departments). 2 of my lifeguard buddies, Tomas and Kurt, will be cheering me on across the channel in my escort boat!
I am nervous and scared and excited all at the same time!
(that makes about 150 of us Turtle! We'll see you on the water Sunday!)
