OluKai & Suzie Cooney Host A Free 3 Mile Practice Fun Paddle April 28th 2012 in Preparation for the 4th Annual Ho’olaule’a
Aloha! We are so excited to offer the Fun Paddle Series again at the 4th Annual Ho”olaule’a presented by OluKai Premium Footwear. Last year over 120 participants enjoyed the 3 mile, non-competitive course on Maui’s beautiful N. shore. All ages, and all level of paddlers took the water. This practice paddler we are offering encourages water safety and allows those to experience a mini downwinder. I’m looking forward to meeting you, Suzie Cooney.
A Four Star Stand Up Paddling Adventure at the Zancudo Lodge in Costa Rica by Suzie Cooney January 2011
We anchored the boat and paddled to the break that was peeling left all day long. Consistent, nice A shaped, and wow, talk about long rides!?!? Crazy! With only 4 of us on the break, you could easily get in 20+ rides or more if you could handle it. Gregg and Sean were showing me the way pointing out the best sweet spot and where the sand bar began.
These are very helpful tips when arriving to a new spot. Second time SUP rookie, Sloan, a fisherman from New York was handling his board really well. Gregg was just a paddling machine and we had a hard time pulling him off the waves when it was time to go.
