Women Walking on Water June 13 in DC: What Could I Love More Than This?

My life changed three years ago when I looked out Charlie Young Beach in Maui and saw a group of people walking on the ocean.

Since that day, I have learned the glorious sport of Stand Up Paddling, aka paddleboarding or SUPing. I’ve paddled in Hawai’i, Massachusetts, the Potomac, the Anacostia, and the Chesapeake Bay.

Recently, I’ve learned that there is one thing I love even more than SUPing: teaching other people how to SUP.
