#51: Victoria Burgess - Cuba to Florida world record holder, ocean athlete

In Episode 51 we speak with Victoria Burgess, an incredible woman of the water and world record holder. Victoria shares her stories of paddling 115 miles from Cuba to Florida in 27 hours to break the World Record for fastest solo female SUP paddle to cross the Florida Straits. We hear of Victorias approach to training for her record paddle, years of competitive surfing and SUP racing, paddling in Molokai 2 Oahu, and finding her love for foiling and the waters of Southern Florida. Victoria shares her thoughts on nutrition and training for competitive paddling and her philosophy around preparing body and mind for endurance sports in the water.

Thanks for sharing Victoria's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of Victoria on Instagram, Facebook, and her website. You can also find fun stuff on the ThisOceanLife.TV Instagram, and Facebook pages. We are also on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.

This episode is sponsored by Mile 22, makers of surf and paddle board straps — including world famous Monster Straps (which I LOVE) — designed in California by folks who surf and paddle every day. Check them at www.Mile22.com.
