Julie Roach, Indo Board SUP/Yoga Instructor

A few days ago, we had a great time Stand Up Paddle Boarding and practicing Yoga on our SUP’s with Julie Roach of http://www.myyogagirl.com.


Julie writes, “Living in Central Florida all my life, water being on both sides and in between, my sport and passion is movement with nature. As a Yoga instructor and personal trainer, I love to train, teach yoga and just generally be outside. Just over a year ago, I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to start teaching yoga on top of a SUP. .. HEAVEN!

Passionate about stability, balance and mindfulness, I can practice no matter what the wind, water or weather conditions might be. I’m on the water as much as possible, but use the Gigante cushions when I can’t. I position the cushions under the nose & tail of my board, allowing me to have a challenging, stable workout everyday. My yoga practice and strength have improved considerably, and it’s a SUPload of fun right in my own backyard (or living room! )Check it out for yourself . If you have a SUP Board or not, the cushions are the Indo Board GIGIANTE Cushions, and fun to play around with!”

Julie paddles and teaches yoga on the beautiful Winter Park Chain of Lakes in Central Florida. She instructs smaller private groups in basic paddle instruction, yoga and fitness classes in the quiet coves and lakes in and around Orlando. Julie is a Florida native and is a certified yoga instructor and lifeguard. She has created a new board for standup paddle yoga & fitness with Suplove TM, to be introduced at Surf Expo this fall. Look for her in the Suplove booth September 7-10th. She is also a Lululemon Brand Ambassador leading fun & funky events on the water coast to coast! H2yO Classes and private class information can be found on her website: http://www.H2yO.biz or email: yogagirljulieroach@gmail.com

More and more professional athletes are integrating the Indo Board into their training regimes. Here MMA Welterweight title contender Chris “Lights Out” Lytle and Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown train together under the watchful eye of Jim Leo, owner of Pit Fit in Indianapolis, IN.  Jim, Chris and Donald all understand the importance of balance training and how it improves proprioception, neuromuscular response and kinetic chain stability.  Most importantly these guys have fun while training on the Indo Board and that keeps them coming back for more!

Chris "Lights Out" Lytle gets challenged on the Indo Board

Indo Board Enthusiast, and pro surfer, Bethany Hamilton. Her movie – Soul Surfer. Go see it!

Soul Surfer, opening in theatres today, is based on Bethany Hamilton’s true life story. Bethany was attacked by a 14 foot tiger shark on October 31, 2003. The attack left Bethany with a severed left arm.

We are so stoked that Indo Board  was there from the beginning helping Bethany in her quest to become a Professional Surfer after the loss of her arm. She continues to surf and inspire people all over the world. Go Bethany! Keep surfing! You are amazing!

You give us hope.

Much Aloha and Mahalo goes out to Tom Hamilton, Bethany’s dad, for his adamant support of the fact that Indo Board played a part in Bethany’s training.  Indo Board was well placed in several scenes in the film largely due to Tom’s influence in the production of the film.

Go see Soul Surfer. You’ll leave the theatre inspired.

Indo Board Team Rider, Bethany Hamilton's Movie, Soul Surfer, comes to theatres on April 8, 2011


To see the trailer go to http://screencrave.com/2011-01-28/official-soul-surfer-movie-trailer/

Indo Board Team Rider, Bethany Hamilton’s inspiring story, Soul Surfer, is scheduled to be in theatres April 8, 2011.  Bethany’s story caught world wide attention when she suffered from a brutal shark attack on October 31, 2003. The surfing community as a whole, is an extremely small one, and as a world family, we all prayed for her full recovery.  The good vibes and hard work payed off as we exuberantly watched again Bethany doing what she loves so much: surfing. Here at Indo Board, we are stoked to have been a part of Bethany’s rehabilitation from the very beginning, and we are tickled pink to see her story coming soon to the big screen. In this photo: Fellow surfer and Indo Man, Hunter Joslin, explains to the eager young Bethany correct surfing posture.
