Suplove Ambassador - Trish Hardy
Teacher with Calgary Board of Education/Counsellor/Yoga Teacher
What do you enjoy most about SUP?
What don’t I love!
I love everything about it. I first tried it at a Yoga Conference in San Diego with Gillian Gibree. I learned at that time how to paddle and we did a yoga session on the boards. I was instantly hooked and now I am obsessed with SUP and SUPYoga. I love everything about it, I am learning to beat my fears to SUP on ocean waves. I was in Santa Cruz and saw amazing SUP surfers in action.
What activities do you enjoy to do on your board?
I love flatwater. I have SUP in Hawaii, New Zealand, California and in Calgary on a local lake and in Canmore on the Reservoir. I love paddling a calm river and a lake without wind. I am passionate about doing the headstand!
Where are your favorite places to SUP?
Everywhere I can find water but in my area it would be in the Mountains on a lake. It is an amazing way to explore an area.
If money weren’t an issue, what would you do? What makes you smile? What are your passions in life?
I would live in a beach town near the ocean, walk in bare feet, do yoga and meditation daily, teach yoga, do SUP and surfing, I would also travel to new places. I am passionate about nature, holistic and healthy living and making the most out of life. I would also volunteer in the community making it even a better place to live. I also love working with youth. My husband and dogs would be with me enjoying life.
