With Carolina Cup almost two weeks behind us,time has really given me a great perspective how competitive this SUP world really is. It is still a very fast growing sport but don't think that there is no experience behind it. There are truly many amazing athletes who paddle and train super hard and succeed doing so.
I truly want to be one of these athletes even though I'm 39 but really feel like I'm 25 again. I want to inspire those who always wanted to try something new but never did because of some excuse. Show people that age is NOT a factor and you can enjoy life to the fullest if you truly want.
Racing at the Carolina Cup with an amazing field of big names was an honour and a blessing for my training and experience. I was disappointed with my result but that is just me, I want to be the best. But disappointment leads to more greatness and I am happy to take it.
I'd like to thank all my sponsors and people who has helped me out with technique or any race advise. Mostly to my wife and two boys who were there to support me through out the full race weekend.
Carolina Cup I'll be back for you!
