“Your event takes such a great approach to health, fitness and fun…we would love to help out” says Dave Siragusa, Maui Jim’s sponsorship and event specialist.
Maui Jim will be providing over 25 prizes in the constantly growing “Grand Raffle Event” including 6 pairs of Maui Jim premium sunglasses! Other prizes include their high quality logo beach towels, visors and clothing. “It’s an amazing and very generous contribution. We’re really excited to have such a high end, globally recognized brand originating from Maui involved in this event. Their glasses are incredibly well designed and a functionally superior product to what’s available on the market, and while living here, we really need it. All of our contributing sponsors are really stepping up to make this a fantastic day for our guests.” says event co-host Tommy Callan of Beach Boy Events.
Maui Jim patented proprietary technology keeps the sunny days crisp and distortion free, while keeping the occasional overcast, cloudy days brighter and more clear.
What was once a small sunglass company started in the old whaling town of Lahaina, Maui in the early 1980’s has evolved into an international optical leader in premium eyewear.
Maui Jim sunglasses achieves this extraordinary task by eliminating 100% of UV light and makes reference to UVA as “Aging” light known as “long wave” light which contributes to the aging of skin and tanning.
A patented 9 layer design including a water proof coating, an anti-reflective “bounce back” layer which prevents eye fatigue, a scratch resistant clear coat, and an optically correct distortion free lens that is bonded to a proprietary polarizing film to eliminate glare and transmit more usable light, insures that your view is the best view! And with over fifty styles to choose from, it’s safe to say that other’s “view” of you will be pretty good too.

Stand up paddling or SUP is a fun way to get in shape. It does require a little upper and lower body strength and really targets your core muscles. Here are a few exercises for you to try to improve your upper and lower body endurance:
Imagine sitting in a chair, keep heels on ground, look straight ahead. As you come up for the next rep, keep knees slight bent to avoid locking them. Do about 2 sets of 10-15 reps.
2. Shoulder/Front Alternating Arm Lateral and Side Raises:
If you’re just starting out, start with lighter weights and work your way up to heavier ones. You don’t want to compromise good form. If you start to struggle a little bit on that last rep, try to avoid any swinging motion of the body. Stand with soft or slightly bent knees, posture up and shoulder back. At a decent tempo, raise right arm just up to your chin, left arm, then to the side. Attempt 2 sets 10 -15 reps
Alt arms front raises
Lateral side raises
3. Regular and knee bent pushups:
Pushups don’t have to be hard, so don’t avoid them because they are very good for your upper body strength to help you to your feet faster. You will get stronger if you do them everyday. Remember breath out as you come up, don’t lock the elbows, keep your head in a nuetural position. Avoid doing a “head” push up which is cheating – bring your butt down as you lower your body. Wider shoulders target more chest, hands closer into body targets more triceps.
4. Core Plank:
Your core is heavily worked when you stand up paddle. Another reason to SUP! The basic core plank challenges all your deep floor pelvic muscles radiating outward towards your lower spine, abs and glutes. Remember to draw in your belly button in front of your spine, keep your head and bum down, and keep breathing. Avoid grasping your hands in front of you. Time yourself – 15, 30 – 60 seconds! To advance this move, raise the rear leg, hold for 15 seconds, then switch.
Start Core Plank Position
Advanced Core Plank
These should be a great start for anyone who wants to be stronger for the sport of stand up paddling.
