I’ve got to get out of here and fast. I’d rather be on the water paddling down Maliko catching monster glides and feeling the rush and strong push of wind at my back as I paddle hard to catch the next bump. “Why am I not out there”, I ask myself? “What happened to you Cooney?” I must find my way back to the ocean.

Feature by Adventure Sports Network: Suffering from Ciguatera Poisoning Doesn’t Stop Suzie Cooney from Putting Fitness First
I hope that this article will inspire you to keep going even if you are faced with or dealing with daily chronic pain or are enduring a challenging health condition. You are not alone. Ciguatera is more and more common now as our oceans become more toxic. Educate yourself and tell all of your friends, family and physicians. The #mindwinsfirst and our health is our wealth. Aloha, Suzie Cooney
It’s an honor to be featured in Hawaiian Airlines premiere onboard magazine Hana Hou. It shares all that I do on Maui, including virtual SKYPE training around the world, to coaching top athletes on the ocean.
SUP on the ocean is definitely trending … “Moving from lake paddling to ocean involves an entirely different requirement of skill, knowledge, strength and equipment,” says Suzie Cooney
She has taught hundreds the art of SUPing downwind and her fitness students include SUP Elite stars such as Connor Baxter and Kody Kerbox.
I’m a native of Northern California, now living in Maui 17 years, and can’t wait to visit the Bay Area and share the stoke of stand up paddling. It’s really amazing how it’s growing so fast there with all of the great water ways and easy access. There’s something for everyone even if you’re just beginning in the sport.
Remember, preparing for a SUP race, your first or 20th; requires mental preparation, a mental course map, clarity, having a plan for the unexpected and so much more.
