New SUPlove boards and SUPlove's First Sale!

They are finally here!  SUPlove has gotten their first set of boards to the US and we were lucky enough to try them out and help get their first sale!  More exciting things to come from SUPlove!  I tried the 8'10" x 28.5" Challenger model and I found it to be very stable, agile, and super fun to surf.  The 9'4" Mach1 is it's big brother and would be an ideal SUP surf board for someone between 140-180 lbs, while the 8'5" Challenger seems to be an ideal board for someone under 160lbs.  At 145lbs, I find the Challenger to be an ideal board.

TRX + Indo Board Fusion at IHRSA 2010!

Here is some video of the TRX + Indo Board Fusion class that I helped to teach and create at IHRSA 2010 in San Diego.  I think it generally went pretty well seeing that not many people were actually familiar with both tools and with so many moving parts and so many different ability profiles, it was difficult to keep the class flowing smoothly.  All in all, I do think it was a success!  Using both tools is a great way to train for Stand up Paddle as I have demonstrated in my FREE e-book on How to Train for SUP!  Here's a little background:

The ability of the TRX to displace one’s center of gravity while creating limitless planes of motion and movement angles makes it an amazing tool for training the body in three dimensions.  Indo Board was created to take people away from their typical stable environments by creating instability which in turn trains the mind and body to improve balance, proprioception, coordination, postural awareness and neuromuscular response.   We believe the TRX is the best tool for training in 3-D, therefore, combining it with the Indo Board takes it to the next level.  Training in 4-D.  TRX, Indo Board, Jon Ham, and You Lee Rodriguez collaborated on this project to create a workout further challenging the TRX user by taking the normally stable contact point whether it's the feet or hands, and adding instability to that point.  The net result is a workout that provides increased muscular recruitment along with a greater challenge to the bodies balance and stabilization systems producing a more dynamic result.  Thanks to You Lee Rodriguez for the great background beats!
