This video shows it all. Amazing footage of a one-year-old snowboarder. Talk about learning to fly before you can walk. Little Ava Marie shows her stuff as she goes down the slopes of Mammoth Mountain. Looking super cute with her tiny pink snowboard, Ava, clearly has the coordination and balance. Just imagine her in about 15 years at the Olympics!!!

Stand Up Paddlers To Set Record

British Stand Up Paddlers will connect Bath to London

British Stand Up Paddlers will connect Bath to London

 

British Adventurers Dave Cornthwaite and Sarah Outen aim to be the first to Stand Up Paddle (SUP) between Bath and London. The pair, who between them have rowed and paddled across both oceans and continents, are to team up for the first time, to endure a week of Stand Up Paddling across the UK from Bath to London. They are aiming to arrive into London’s Tower Bridge on the 8th June to celebrate World Oceans Day. Cornthwaite, who once skateboarded across Australia and also paddled the country’s longest river, and Outen, who rowed solo across the Indian Ocean last year, are measuring their trip in Blue Miles, which are miles travelled on or besides the water. The dynamic duo are both Ambassadors of The Blue Mile – Race for the Environment, the UK’s newest mass-participation event which encourages participants to swim, paddle or walk for our seas. They are planning for 100’s of paddlers to join them for sections of the trip aiming to amass a total of 1000 Blue Miles before they reach their finish line at Tower Bridge.

 

“Fusing sport and travel is a great way to enthuse people about the Blue environment in which they play and train,” Cornthwaite says, “there’s no better way to celebrate the spirit of British Adventure than travelling through our own country with an ever-growing group of strangers joining our ranks.”

 

“SUP is similar to surfing, but it’s much easier as you use a paddle to get around – a bit like punting,” said Sarah. “I love anything that allows me to travel on water and get close to nature. As a sport it is great because it is so accessible and versatile – it can be done virtually anywhere by anyone, plus it’s a great way to keep fit.” The 150 mile route isn’t just a straightforward paddle, as 114 locks – or portages – lie between Bath and London. Effectively, Cornthwaite and Outen are taking on the route of the famous Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race, with another 25 miles on top. The Blue Bath 2 London is being supported by Sport Environment and will promote the Blue Climate and Oceans Project, an initiative that works with sports men and women to harnesses the popularity of adventure sports that showcase the natural environment.
