The Complete Freedom:  Stand up paddling Brais Lake, Italy

Experience a lifetime based on breath and movement, oneness with nature and a connection to all that is good inside you.  Starboard Sup yogi, Denisse Delagiacoma offers a glimpse into a life balanced between breath and water in this iconic video on Brais Lake,  Italy.

“This is a moment of freedom:  when you connect deeper to yourself, connect to the whole, nature, modern health and the elements.”
– Denisse Delagiacoma

Known as the “Pearl among Dolomite Lakes”, this emerald green lake sits in the north of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park.  According to legend, at the south end of the lake near Mt. Croda del Becco, there exists a gate to the Fanes underworld.  This gate – the sages say – can only be accessed via a boat ride.  Another name for this magnificent body of water is “Sass dla Porta” which literally means, ‘Gate Mountain’.

“And when you experience the flow and sense of peace inside you, nothing will be as it was before.”

Experience the beauty the legends talk about in this stunningly beautiful video by Manuele Mariotti.  It is a film sponsored by Speedo H2OActive, a fashionable, functional and versatile new Speedo range for women, redefining activewear for today’s healthy lifestyle seeker.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
