In Episode 64 we speak with Mike Lenane, a man of Western Australia with strong passion for sharing the world of standup paddleboarding SUP with others. Mike takes us through his life growing up near Perth and the evolution of his ocean life with bodyboarding, surfing, and then SUP. We hear stories of Mike discovering SUP, building a lifestyle business around the sport, and his stoke for introducing others to the water. Mike talks about his video production work on projects like "SUP in the 1920's" a spin on the old silent movies and his latest project, "This is Stand Up Paddle" that puts a new twist on nature documentaries (you must watch it here on YouTube) and was part of the first SUP Film Fest. Mike also has a new YouTube channel, "The SUP Show" that dives into the world of SUP and all things ocean.
Thanks for sharing Mike's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of him on Facebook. Plus check out his Sunset Standup Paddle website. There is also some fun stuff on the This Ocean Life Instagram and Facebook pages and we are also on Twitter ranting about stuff.
