Bicho Jimenez

SUP Magazine (26 min. ago) - s a racer, I hope to make top-5 in the world in rankings. As a human, I hope to be able to keep coaching and mentoring the kids of Sayulita, Mexico on our youth SUP team, showing them the power of sport and teammates to give them more focus, passion and support. My goal is to become one of the best paddlers in the world, represent my hometown, and, through traveling and racing, show my team of kids that anything is possible and motivate them to follow me.  read more...

How to create a paddle destination race

Distressed Mullet (2 hrs. ago) - It’s the most basic question, but a good one. Is this located in a place that you’d visit without there being an event? Lake Tahoe? Heck yeah. Maui? Yep. But it doesn’t have to be exotic. If there’s water, I bet there are cool places to visit. Find them. Figure out what makes your location special? Ask the town, county or state’s tourism board.  read more...
