I’ve got to say that I love doing this show, but there are some episodes that are more fun to record than others… Shak, the current World #2 ranked SUP surfer, proved to be a great story teller and the hour flew by. I am sure the listen will as well…

Shak was there at the beginning of the Australian paddle surfing scene and recounts the story of Jamie Mitchell shaping having what she thinks is the first board in Australia. She talks about the design changes with paddles, having been on Quickblades’ team early on, and she tells an incredible story about how she just had the Coast Guard looking for her for a whole afternoon.

Listen and enjoy!
