We followed Tim, Avalon and their son Vegas Beban on their morning SUPing ritual from their house that backs onto beautiful Tallebudgera Creek. Tim and Avalon are the proud owners of “The Surfboard Warehouse” and are always keen to share a wave as well as some insight into how they start their mornings off;
“It’s such a great way to start the day. Being out on the water with the family, enjoying the sunshine and getting to exercise at the same time is perfect” Avalon says with a smile ear to ear.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to kick start our morning than to have the family on the water immersing ourselves in nature and catching a few sneaky waves. A morning on the water really does change your whole outlook on the day ahead and I think it is important to live and breathe what you do. I’m just lucky that I design and sell surfboards and SUPs” said Tim with a big wholesome laugh.
These Waterborn Evoke SUPs are so versatile that Avalon uses them for yoga and tells us that “SUP yoga is becoming really popular within the fitness community and there are classes being offered all over the world now. Balancing the SUP while practicing Yoga Poses adds a whole new level of challenge to my practice. You really need to control your breathing and evenly distribute weight through your body more so than on dry land. It’s a great workout and a heap of fun, even when you fall in!” She says again with her trademark smile.
