Episode 13 of the PaddleWoo Podcast features Oahu’s Noa Ginella.  You have seen Noa in his featured role in Kai Lenny’s SUP Movie which he also helped on the production side.  I hesitate to define Noa, as it is apparent that he is a waterman first and foremost.  Surfing, paddling, spearfishing, diving, and even OC1 are on the menu on any given day depending on conditions.

I think you’ll be surprised to hear what he has to say about the boards that team Naish are using, his future in the sport of SUP and who inspires him.

Enjoy the show and feel free to comment below.  As always, I appreciate the support and feedback.  E
