Join Leslie Kolovich and Josh Vajda as they talk about This weekend’s Fall Paddle Festival.
It was a 2-day all-things-paddle event in Treasure Island, Florida. Hosted by world-class SUP racer and waterman Chase Kosterlitz and his Water Monkey Shop, 100 Stand up Paddlers took to the ocean on Sunday for a 3-mile, 8-mile, and costume relay race. Well, it was supposed to be a 3-mile, but a funny thing happened on the way to the buoy…Nevertheless, the racers were treated to ideal conditions (read: flat water), cool temperatures and great aloha spirit, as always, leading to great times – both on the water and off.~Josh Vijda

Which is the subject of tonight’s report: Listen Now…
We have gorgeous year round paddling conditions here in the Caribbean but like anything to much of a good thing has its negative factor. For paddling that negative is the accumulation to sun exposure with year round paddling condtions and a UV Index to go with it. We all know early morning or late afternoon are the best times to stay out of the rays, but not all of us have that choice or discipline. That’s why we protect our family with a combination of avoiding peak exposure, applying Raw Elements Chemical Free & Organic Sunscreen and covering up with Sweetwater performance apparel on race day, weekend outings or long training sessions. On the line we have Sean Sweet from Hawaii to talk about how his gear keeps us in top racing form as well as protecting us from the sun. We also have Brian Guadagno with Raw Elements to talk about sunscreen myths, application, benefits to our bodies and our ocean by using chemical free products. Although Sean and Brian are not from Puerto Rico, their products are a part of my families everyday life and keeps us on the water and safely protected from the harmful effects of the sun.~Heather Baus
Your Caribbean dealer for both products is Aquatica Dive and surf shop located on the West side of Puerto Rico in beautiful Aguadilla. For any other information please contact the Caribbean rep and Ambassador- Heather Baus a firstname.lastname@example.org
Raw Elements may be applied to babies, protects our reefs by not putting harmful chemicals into our oceans in heavily populated areas which is a contributing factor to the bleaching of our coral reefs. The feel of this sunscreen is a little different and and remember by using this sunscreen it’s like eating your vegetables, not everyone likes veggies, but they are good for you and your body. – Heather Baus
