PUSH: the dynamics of endurance – a new video by Lee Visuals

Global Partner

What does it mean to PUSH? To move outside of one’s comfort zone and ask the body to give MORE and MORE over distance, over time. In this stunning new video by Lee Visuals (creator of Wild Coast, a sup surfer’s dream of sliding along the Tofino coastline), creator Kelsey Lee Thompson explores the dynamic between paddler and ride, equipment versus engine to show how distance work is done.

Supported by Blackfish Paddles and ONE Sup, this is a ride you’ll remember.

PUSH:  Explore the dynamics of endurance with Canada’s Jason Bennett & Blackfish Paddles

Shot in Deep Cove and Squamish, British Columbia, PUSH features Jason Bennett, one of Canada’s top stand up paddle racers specializing in distance racing.  In the film, Jason discusses the drive and mental state required for distance paddling.

Focusing on energy management, endurance and pushing to the finish line, this dynamic new film by Lee Visual is a stunning portrayal of the moment … and driving through it.

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 editor@standupjournal.com . 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.
