Walk on water wherever you find it for a mediatative experience

Walk on water wherever you find it for a meditative experience

Water – in lakes, rivers, bays and the deep blue sea. We know our tribe, we are “Water Walkers.” Board under barefeet, paddle in hand we crave our time on the water. Whether we dream of catching that perfect wave or training for technique and speed, we want the meditative state of being absolutely present and one with the water. The team at P2SUP loves hearing your stories and all the reasons you head to the water. When life is chaotic and some active meditation could connect you to your purpose and balance (mind and spirit) – we have guided meditation scripts to share. Why do you “walk on water?” Here are some reasons we hear again and again.

Fun – that is certainly one reason to SUP or “walk on water.” Not so surprisingly,  a marine biologist and author, Wallace J. Nichols, has done an enormous amount of research for his ground-breaking book, BLUE MIND. He has explored the cognitive and emotional benefits of being in, on or around water. As humans, we have a neurological reaction to water. We enjoy a mildly meditative state that increase our ability to focus while reducing stress. According to Nichols, “Just seeing or hearing water triggers that response.”

KIALOA Paddles
P2SUP Founder, Judy Shasek (author of the Elder SUP blog), has been using Kialoa Paddles for over eight years. From recreational river paddling, to ocean surfing and cruising – from course to down wind racing – Shasek has enjoyed a KIALOA Paddle for every need. Innovation in function and design is an on-going and integral part of the KIALOA culture.We know that each of you enjoying a “Power of Presence” active meditation during your standup paddle can find a KIALOA paddle at the price point you seek.

You can weigh the attributes of weight, durability, portability (adjustable and travel paddles) and blade size, then select what is exactly right for you. namastek
