As Race season comes to a close…… 

#teamsecs2016

This year Christos and I launched a new program,and  not only did this badass tribe exceed all expectations, we made some great memories and life long friends. This tribe has so much stoke, enthusiasm, and excitement for SUP, it was a pleasure and honor to coach.  

And we want you to join us!!! 

Even though Sup is technically a sport where you compete against your friends, well in this tribe there is so much support and team work that you can’t help but high five each other when the race is said and done. And you will see many friends and athletes photographed at the finish line with that exact same high five and smile full of stoke! Our tribe welcomes all levels so now let me recap and take you through our exciting season and Introduce you to the badass stokers that make up our race team. 

Our tribe our vibe:
Let’s kick things off with D’dra:


New to paddling and wanting to get into better shape through  paddle. D,Dra not only accomplished those goals but also made incredible strides in paddling in open ocean and challenging weather conditions! She trusted me to teach her how to dance on the water and let go of her fear of open ocean. Each practice, each stoke, she got better and better and came a long way this season!  I can’t wait to see her kill it next year! 

Meet: Mama Amber and Mama Bee!


Now I cannot tell a lie, when these two ladies called I was hesitant and almost said no because they had never paddled in their life! They reached out and said they had just had a baby and were looking for a fun way to get their bodies back post baby. At first I said no, then I hung up the phone and thought to myself that is so not our style or vibe at SECS and I am going to make these two racers if that’s what they want! And boy am I glad they called! Not only did I get the pleasure of teaching them how to paddle, I got to coach and witness first hand their incredible journey into competitive racing and killed it! All with a big smile and happy hearts!  They came to practice ready to work , whether they were up all night with screaming babies they gave me 100 percent and trusted me to let me push and guide them to their goals! Watching them cross the finish lines this year was a spectacular and thrilling sight! I can’t wait to  supersede their fitness and paddle goals for next season! 

Ashley:


I have been working with Ashley on her fitness goals for quite some time now and before season hit we went out for a low key paddle together where I started talking to her about the race team program. Just like that she signed up for the team like she signed up for kickball and all the other fun stuff this girl does. She went from holding her paddle backwards, barley knowing how to stand on a board to pretty much hitting the podium at every race we entered. This girl became a badass tribe member, a kick ass teammate and I can’t wait to see and coach her in her next chapter! 

Brenda:


Is an incredible athlete and like most of us fits in as many fitness activities, classes, gyms and events as she possibly can. There’s no off season for people like Brenda and she had so much fun this season on the team. She brings light, positive energy and puts 110% into everything she does! 

Jen:


Jen is obsessed with all things paddle. From, swag,gear, events, you name it she has it or has tried it! She also is spectacular at logistics when it comes to relay events, and Portages😜 She has a board for every occasion and simply can’t get enough. Jen paddles all over, she is a part of Secs and loves to go off and do her own thing. She has been paddling for years and you can always tell which one she is Because she likes to get into her own zone and have her music  on board with her while racing. She had a great season!

Amy🌞

Amy and I have been paddling together for a few years now and was a big fan and encouraging force for me to launch this program. (Thank you) Amy is the nicest human and a fierce competitor. She is the hardest on herself and won’t give up until she gets it right! Her intensity, commitment and effort when it comes to the team is contagious. She is your friend and will be the first one to drop in and train with you anytime anywhere. When race day comes, it’s game on! The energy she brings to the team keeps everyone in check and on their game. She is awesome to coach and her paddle game is only getting better and better! 


Rhodes:

I was lucky enough to meet Rhodes in 2011 when I gave him his first Sup 101 lesson and he purchased one of my favorite boards, from when we were carrying  Jimmy Lewis boards. Boy I miss those days, anyways now Rhodes rides a 14ft Bark and man can this guy paddle! We all love when practice times don’t conflict with work for Rhodes because we know I’d have to spend the whole time chasing him on the water. In the words of Kayne  West: ” Work it, make it, do it, Makes us harder, better, faster, stronger!” Thanks Rhodes for killing on the water and for the incredible sportsmanship you bring to the team and the sport .

Mikki:

I had my eye on Mikki since the first day I saw her paddle at the kiosk, and said to myself this is a diva stoker, mermaid soul sister  and someone I must have as a part of this program when I start it….And sure enough, 3 seasons of planting the seed in her brain, she is the queen bee  when it comes to stoke and teamwork! Mikki went from a casual recreational paddler to running sprints Saturday mornings at 6am and no matter rain or shine it was game on to get ready for race day! This teammate knows how to paddle hard, have fun, spread the stoke and smile every damn day when she is on that water! Give her a board and her happy place is contagious! Her hard work and positive attitude helped to achieve her goals of improving her time everytime she set out for a practice run and her times will keep getting better and better because me her coach and her team will be with her every step of the way! Go Mikki!

Channin:

Channin is an incredible group X instructor who started taking my land fitness classes and join our outdoor sup fitness classes as well. She was hooked from the very start and so year two she decided to join the race team with us. With a few injuries holding her back, it didn’t stop her from having a kick ass season! This winter she will be recovering  from surgeries and coming back next season even stronger then the last and we can’t wait for her speedy recovery! 


Scott and Amy

So we kick off the season with the run of the Charles and little did I know that this entire team was so bad ass and brought so much enthusiasm with them! 
Scott and Amy have been water peeps for years and I was honored to have them want to be a part of this team. It took me a while to get them both out of their comfort zones and I totally identified exactly where they were at, because we had a  major thing in common which was our east coast soccer legs and years of being trained with a square stance. We took that beast mode energy, stoke and athleticism and took the podium several times. Don’t let this 5’1 paddler fool you, she goes beast mode when she hits that water, every single time. And loves to stoke out others! She believes in the power of cheer and teamwork! Just what Secs is all about! And  Scott’s goal was to shave ten minutes off his time from last year races and make that podium. Well with my magic pink board and his trust in me, we did just that and more! Both of them walked away with ample time on that podium! ​

​Look out New England this power sup couple is on fire!!!! 2017 we’re coming for you! 



Assistant Coach and racer aka Tost🤘🏽

My husband, my right hand, the one who helps make all my crazy into a reality as well as kills it on the water himself. Tost is that paddler who reminds me of the kid in school who never studied, barely had to and yet always aced the test. He has the patience of a saint and there’s no one else who displays the amount of class and sportsmanship as an athlete and  coach. He is a natural and my hope is that both of us get some more water time next season because I am not a natural like him and have to work my tail  off!  I’ll catch him one day😜


And me! Your coach and number one fan! 

We are currently working on our winter program for you, and filling in our 2017 race calendar. Want to join our tribe? 

🌟All levels welcome, just shoot us an email at supeastcoaststyle@gmail.com to learn how to join the team 

Our only requirements is that you must be full of stoke! The rest of it leave up to me.

As Race season comes to a close…… 

What A Weekend! 

What a way to kick off a fantastic weekend! At this time of year the winds Pick up, you see the surf kick up and why? Because it’s hurricane season and time to catch some waves. And that’s exactly what we did with Cape Anne Sup! And boy do they know how do it right! #somuchstoke🤘🏽

We kicked off the weekend with members of team Sup East Coast Style and went out for a group Sup Surf lesson with our friends at Cape Anne Paddle.   First of all watching Dom and Annilese (owners of Cape Anne Sup)  on the water is simply magical and incredible to watch. They, as I like to say, dance with the water so beautifully. It was really so special to learn from such amazing instructors and people inside and out! Our group had a fabulous time, learned so much. We all cannot wait to do it again and are 100% hooked! A lot of you may be surprised, but for me it was my first time SUP Surfing and I was completely out of my comfort zone! It has been on my bucket list as I have always been so envious, intrigued and in complete awe of all my surfer friends. Shocking right,  that I have never surfed before.  Ask me to paddle across open ocean,  leg press a ridiculous amount,  jump a 360 on my Surfset board, pretty much up for everything when it comes to sports,fitness  and challenges. I’m game. I’ve never been the girl to sit on the sidelines in any sport, but when it came to surfing I had this little voice of fear in my head. I’ve been a flat water paddler for many years now in all different types of water, terrain and challenges but when it came to surfing well I had never done it and was a bit nervous😬.  Intructor Annilese made that little voice in my head not be so loud and assured me by saying……”P.s. no judgement being passed. There’s only one way to start ☺”  and for some reason that was all I needed to hear to quiet that fear inside me. Thanks Girl!!!! And just like that, I caught my first two waves and that feeling is AMAZING!!!! Can’t wait to do it again and again and again! I also found it to be a fantastic cross training workout and look forward to implementing this cross training not only for my own workouts and training but also for our race team. 

If any of you want to take a lesson, bring a group or sign up your kid next year for surf/ Sup surfing lessons/ camp/ programs, get in touch with Cape Anne Paddle. They do a ton of other stuff too and have the cutest shop called the Board Barn. Do yourself a favor and stop by! That’s where I get all my mermaid swag that you all love so much! 


After a fantastic night of surfing…. We ended the weeknd with our 6th Annual Costume paddle.  All though Mother Nature had the wind kicking a bit, the air temp and water was warm and the Rain held off! Thanks to everyone who came out you paddled hard against that wind and had so much fun. We enjoyed all the costumes  so much and you definitely earned your cupcakes! We had such a blast, Thank you!

Let’s Alway’s Celebrate life! It’s Tost’s Birthday and updates on #secs2017

It’s a Lifestyle….  


Not only are we stoked to head into 7th season of Sup East Coast Style we are over the moon to share this new chapter with all of you!

As many of you know Christos works full time at Eastern Bank and my year round full time career has been Skincare since I was 19 and teaching fitness. Over the past 7 years, we have had so many cross over clients between both businesses that we have evolved into a Life Style Brand.  Our goal personally and professionally is to create, live and write our own story. And right under our nose was something even more powerful which is the gift to be able to share it with all of you. Our tribe, our vibe, our brand, It’s a Lifestyle.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”Anaïs Nin

With growth comes change… And change is scary but oh so good!!!!!!!!

We have decided to move my skincare practice to Yoga Sakti as well as expand Sup East Coast Style into a year round brick and mortar all under one beautiful roof! You will now be able to receive all your services, shop, shower and workout at one address all year long! Don’t Worry we still have all our locations for SUP, now you can just shop for more products, swag, boards, paddles and more,all year long! Being able to practice skincare, train for fitness, teach my classes among such a talented group (you will find many of our sup yoga instructors teach here as well 😊) , combine Sup East Coast Style  and skincare under one roof, is truly bad ass. We couldn’t  be more thrilled!



We have almost completed the move and hope to be fully open for everything Oct 1st. It will be a work in progress so we thank you for your patience as we enter into this new journey.  In the mean time all skincare clients will still be at the current location and continue to book online for appointments! http://leahbeth.webs.com/

I have been in skincare since 2001 and have traveled all over growing my practice, knowledge and love for health and wellness.
