Ocean Fitness – Challenge yourself

Being an Ocean Athlete is so exciting and fun when you wake up to glassy waves with power to surf or sup or 20 knots of side shore winds to explore with a kite or a sail. The hard part is when it is flat and cold and the ocean is not very inspiring while giving it the surfer gaze . One needs to look creatively at these conditions to find that challenge that…

Finding Motivation day in and day out for Ocean Fitness

We all get motivated at times especially when the conditions are putting a smile on our face and we know that we are about to get challenged doing something that we love so much. Getting Ocean Fitness when the waves are chest high and clean or when the wind is blowing 20 and the head high peaks are rolling on the sandbar is why we do it for sure. The…

Strapless kiting

I was fortunate enough to catch a nice kitesurfing session at Folly with the fellas this morning and catch some waves . Nothing like kiting in the surf  while going strapless and getting it as close to surfing as possible. Enjoyed watching my nephew Tanner ripping it up with a very good style. Life is good!

Thinking outside of the box

Sometimes living in Chucktown can get challenging when you dedicate yourself to the ocean and all you want is a quality swell . Thinking outside the box is very important and many of us have adapted to riding waves with paddles, sails and kites and whatever else we have to do to get a quality session. Yesterday was no different as many of us kited downwind with a brisk east breeze in the morning and as the winds lightened caught waves while paddling downwind in the afternoon. Anyway like many of you all we really want to is catch waves so thinking outside the box makes things more interesting.

Weeks of Wind

The wind has been flip flopping form South West to North East it seems every other day. There has been no lack of good wind and waves to play in. It is very common these days to see cars full of guys and girls doing down winders and going with the flow as they ride down the beach for miles just sharing good times. The best part is we are all getting Ocean Fit. Life is good.

The Fusions is as good as it gets

There are many dealers of SUPS in the Charleston Market and they have many good boards to offer for all the various aspects of stand up surfing whether you want to ride in flat water or ride waves. As a long time waterman and having worked hard to afford a good quiver and maintain one for me and my kids it really is a joy to have lots of options now that my family is in the business these days. I rode the Coreban fusion today in chest high waves and this board truly is special as it turns so well and noserides equally well. It truly is a special board and certainly as good as anything I have seen on the market.

Going full circle as sup sailing is on the rise

With the explosion of stand up surfboards on the market today the options are limitless. Many brands have the windsurf attachment which is a nice addition. Typically you need a lot of wind to windsurf but now you are able to sail in quite light winds with out all the work. This is a great sport for riding waves and cruising and is a great addition to your ocean activities. I hope to see this sport grow again in this market.
