Bone Island 6-Mile Paddle Race, Lazy Dog Key West This weekend!

I'm not sure if you're as cold as I am, but the thought of Key West sounds amazing to me right now—especially when facing down the 12+ feet of snow or freezing cold rain we've had in the past few weeks....

Check out this post from Suzie Cooney from Suzie Trains Maui:

Training in the zone with Kody Kerbox, Naish stand up paddle professional athlete in all disciplines; seems to be such a natural state.  But it takes focus, hard work and lots and lots of different methods of training to train the mind.  Here is an excerpt from one of the chapters of my new book coming out soon about what kind of stand up paddler you’ll find in the zone and how you can get there too.  (be sure to see video below)

In my book I describe the certain profile type of an elite SUP paddler athlete that is often there and what type of environment and conditions they thrive on.  Here is a small preview from that chapter:

…The of Type of Paddler You’ll Find in The Zone:

You may have guessed by now that it takes a certain kind of SUP athlete to transcend into this special performance state. You may also already have in your mind some of the most disciplined top paddlers that would lead you to believe they’ve had lots of practice getting to and being in the zone.

Sure some are blessed with lots of innate talent but I’d have to say most have to work very hard they just make it look easy.  One thing they all have in common is their ability to focus. They are in the zone often and you see it time and time again.

With that notion I’d like to share a few examples of those personality traits so you too can start thinking about your next or first visit in the zone.

Take Kody Kerbox, Naish team rider of many different disciplines. He does it all, long distance, JAWS, SUP surfing, channel crossings, sprint races, he’s got experience in all SUP venues.  Sure it helps to have good inherited lineage from that of his father Buzzy Kerbox; but to be able to perform at high levels time and time again, he’s got this zone thing dialed.

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him grow into the amazing athlete he is today with grace and a special, fine tuned skill set. I’ve followed him for some time and now I have the pleasure of helping him achieve at even higher levels.
