Team Rider ⚓ Donica Shouse
Get to know team SUP rider, Donica Shouse...
Donica rounds out Team Sirensong with her grace and skill on a SUP. She learned to surf in Newport, Oregon and now calls Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii home. Donica’s favorite surf break is Lyman's in Kona; it's where she met her husband, Abra, the mastermind behind Paddle Hawaii (http://www.paddlehawaii.com). Donica embodies the love of surfing, paddling, and living a healthy, beautiful life. As far as competition goes, she enjoys it mostly for the opportunity to surf with only a couple others out, but also because it encourages her to push harder. She recently pulled her first helicopter – yeah, she’s going to have to come over here to Oahu to teach us a thing or two!
When asked why she wants to be part of Sirensong's team and why she identifies with our brand, she said, “Sirensong's such a unique and soulful brand. I'm honored to be a part of the team, I hope to inspire girls to find the edge of their comfort zone and reach past it. It's important to be confident; I think Sirensong is keen to this and the role our garments play in that. Timothy Leary summed it up well "The highest goal of man on earth is to live an aesthetic life based on the dance."
Of her dream surf trip, she again seemingly takes the words from my mouth, “Any time I surf without my watch it feels like a dream but I often fantasize of Tahiti.”
Shameless plug: We'd be remiss if we failed to mention that Donica's hubby, Abraham Shouse, is the CEO and founder of Paddle Hawaii - maker of our favorite wooden paddles! Check out his craftsmanship at www.paddlehawaii.com!
