Stand-up paddling is an incredible thing that, living in Hawaii, I am lucky enough to do several times a week (If you’ve been here before, you may have noticed I have a thing for the ocean). This Sunday, Jodie Nelson is using SUP as a vehicle for change, paddling 40 miles to raise money for breast cancer. I hope you’ll watch these inspiring videos and support her cause at
Paddle With Purpose.

  1. Absolutely love that you posted about Jodie! She is a dear friend of mine and my maid of honor at my wedding. Isn’t this paddle great? I’m sorry to say I have not tried stand-up paddling yet, but that is definitely my goal this summer!

  2. awesome. she’s so inspiring. you’ll have to get her to take you out once she’s recovered from the Big Paddle! it’s addictive ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh my goodness did you see the story about the whale that swam along with her for 2 hours? Same girl right? Now I can’t find the story again!
