Florida’s Gulf Coast is a water wonderland and for kids growing up there, its not a question of wether or not they will be involved in a water sport, but how many. Lina enjoys plenty of them; swimming, boating, water skiing and tubing, but Stand Up Paddling is by far her favorite. When she was 8 years old, a neighbor introduced her to the sport and she’s been hooked ever since. She is a member of the Florida Junior SUP Competition Team and enjoys training, racing and competing with her fellow teammates across the state. Lina is a full time student, and loves sharing her excitement for paddling with all her friends and is looking forward to getting involved in sup surfing events.
