People often ask me, Suzie who trains you? Well, I’m inspired by so many people but there is one person who I trust the most, and who has pushed me in harsh, knarly conditions but always with a watchful eye and great teaching skills, and that is Jeremy Riggs. Although I too help people navigate Maliko down winders, I put my trust and confidence in Jeremy to give me that extra competitive edge or strategy when approaching be swell racing techniques.  His website: http://paddlewithriggs.com

Jeremy Riggs

Jeremy’s big swell and big wave knowledge is pretty incredible. He chases me down to the harbor and like any good coach; has me pushing and watching for every bump and glide. Wow. As a trainer, I love it. His patience and ability to read the swells while I’m riding is cool. He’ll be right on the tail of my board telling me there’s a big one coming, just paddle harder and don’t stop. Funny, I know that but it’s like having an extra turbo boost in my brain that goes right to my body.

Here’s a photo of yesterday’s coaching session. Maliko run to the harbor March 17, 2012. Winds gusting over 40 mph and nice, big Easterly swell running underneath us. His wife Jill joined as well which made it extra fun.

With trade winds year ’round and a shuttle bus that allows for easy point to point paddling, Maliko is one of the most perfect downwind locations on Earth. Paddle with Riggs helps people learn the art of catching and connecting bumps.No matter what your experience, Jeremy can help you get to that next level with hands-on, video training and instruction.

Jeremy Riggs, elite stand up paddler and surfer, talent is amazing on the water and off! We’re working on a little cross training to increase his performance so he’s ready for any glide, bump or swell and for the surf this winter. Jeremy recently came in first place overall in the 14 foot ruderless class, at the 5th Annual Naish Paddle Championships here on Maui July 18th. Jeremy finished with an impressive time of 1:18:45. This is the 5th year in a row he’s won the Naish rudderless division. I know he wants to keep this streak going!

“Suzie’s training keeps me at a high level of fitness without paddling. I’ve learned some really challenging exercises that are fun
and will keep me strong outside of paddling. I also want to prevent injury. The number one thing Suzie gives me is more confidence and now I feel more prepared. Suzie’s helping me out tremendously. I’m doing more, so I should be better. ”
