There may be heatwave currently winding its way through Southern California, but it’s still officially Fall in the Northern Hemisphere. That means an end to 8pm sunset surf and paddle sessions after work and eventually a cooling off of the ocean and the air. We may not have extreme seasonal temperature fluctuations here in SoCal, but we definitely notice a change that affects our flow sport rituals & routines. We caught up with Los Angeles Local Expert, Giancarlo Ranaudo, to learn more about how the onset of Fall changes his surfing flow and to get some sagely advice on how to maximize the fun during this time.
Need a colder wetsuit!
goFlow Community, meet San Diego local and Pro Paddleboarder, Noa Hopper. Noa began SUPing at the tender age of 11, but began practicing other paddlesports long beforehand.
We had a chance to catch up with Noa after returning from some summer training in Hawaii to get the 411 on paddleboarding, his routine, why sharks rule and where to grab a scrumptious post-session burrito in San Diego.
Q – What does ‘being in the flow’ mean to you?
A whole lot of training! Also Pacific Paddle Games in Dana Point is the next big Standup race for me so… Fingers crossed.
We have been working extremely hard improving goFlow over the last few months and we are pumped to bring you the best version of the app to-date. We think you’ll find our focus on simplicity and usability manifested in the re-designed user interface, and the all-new features allow you to use goFlow like never before. OH YA, and all this awesomeness is now available on Android as well!
