Thumbs up Nice!

Great interview Erick! SUP'ing is definitely a great way to beat the summertime blues! I still think you should have ditched the shirt to show the ladies you physique! hahahahaa

Another Eric worth noting, is the video (right below Erick's SUP story) about Eric McDaniel, a disabled veteran, who suffered a stroke in special forces training. Eric is a regular at ASF/ JAHVAH events and clinics, and was discovered by the U.S. Paralympic rowing team at our rowing clinic earlier this year. Eric has brought himself back from near paralysis to being in top physical condition through his positive, never-give-up attitude, and lots of training. Look for Eric at the beach this season, as he has taken an interest in learning to kite!
More on this year's rowing clinic here: http://actionsportsfoundation.org/in...id=1&Itemid=50

Look for more things poppin' with these veterans and the kids from The Childrens Home later this fall at a beach near you!

Once again, nice work Erick! You did a fantastic job of representing the local SUP'ers (and kiters!) and bringing positive exposure to the sport with that interview!
See ya on the water my brother!
