  • Tales from the Wave ... A Chia Surge Story

    What's up ladies and germs. Josh here. I know what most of you are thinking - I'm a marathon runner/triathlete/sprinter/body screen-shot-2012-05-30-at-70958-pmbuilder/insert bad ass sport here - what can this grom teach me? That my friends is why I'm here - to enlighten you and open your eyes to the wild wonder of chia surge and how it can help you kick butt - no matter your sport of choice.

    I started surfing when I was a kid and basically haven't stopped since. It's not seen as an endurance sport - shock gasp - but let me tell you, when you're out there for 4 hours day in day out, let me tell you, endurance plays a roll. I got hurt a few months back and had to lay off the waves for a while and when I finally got back out there - I was truly surprised at how slowly my body seemed to respond. I was exhausted in a fraction of the time I used to be and I won't lie to you - I was beyond frustrated.

    After having lunch with a good friend of mine - who happens to be a die hard cyclist and a huge Vitalyte advocate, he threw some of this stuff called Chia Surge my way and told me to take it before hitting the waves the next day. Aside from not thinking about Chia in any other form than the pets of yesteryear, I had never taken anything to keep my body going while surfing or doing anything really. Regardless, I was desperate so I tried it.

    I'm not a believer in this type of thing and honestly, aside from thinking twice that I coincidentally had an awesome day the day I took chia surge - I wasn't convinced. Two days later, I went out again - sans surge - and was horribly tired and even more frustrated. The third time - this time with chia - I became a believer.

    This stuff is all natural and kicks in immediately. You feel it enhancing the natural awesomeness you were born to share and that's what I'm looking for. Be it on the road, in the gym, or tearing up the waves, Chia Surge is my new thing and you should probably give it a whirl.

    To the surf and seeds,

    Josh

  • Extreme Kellie: Surfing in La Jolla

    Growing up in Colorado and living here all my life, I’ve never really had the opportunity to get on a surfboard.I’ve always wanted to give it a try, but I haven’t had the luxury of spending enough time on the ocean… until now.

    It's our last story on the road to Southern California and there’s nothing I wanted to do more than surf!I got my first lesson from the girls at Surf Diva Surf School.The company is founded by two sisters who really want women to learn surfing in a fun and encouraging environment.They got me fitted in a girly wet suit, hooked me up with all the gear and gave me all the instructions to go out and surf like a pro! 

    When you get in the water and look around, it doesn’t take long to realize that surfing is a sport dominated by men.That’s why Surf Diva is so popular because they give women the confidence to go out and try it, with instructors who’ve been there.  They’re the #1 surf school in the world and now I know why!

    Our instructor Alyssa Neubarth walked me through the fundamentals.She says, every woman is different… some women pop right up, some women don't get up their first day.I was determined to do this!It might be my only opportunity for a long time...

    I have to admit, I was intimidated at first and had my fair share of wipe outs...

    But once I caught that first (tiny) wave, I was addicted!

    Hey, even the boys were falling off their boards… I think I can hang!

    I know, if I lived in California, I’d be out in the water every week.It’s sunny, warm, the views are amazing… how cool is it that you can surf in the middle of WINTER!!!

    The Surf Diva Motto: “The best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun!” That couldn’t be more true.

    So... when can I go back?!?

    Thanks again to Vitalyte for flying us out to their home base...We truly had an unforgettable trip to San Diego!!!

     

    Catch our story Thursday night at 7pm on The Deuce!
