Paddle Diva’s Annual Mothers Day Paddle!

Our Annual Mothers Day Paddle is coming up on Sunday, May 10 from 10-11:30.  Come with your mom, friend, daughter or loved one and they paddle for FREE.

This 90-minute special paddle event on Three Mile Harbor is the perfect way to get mom jump-started for the spring paddling season.  I’ll be leading the event together my daughter Emma who typically prefers to spend her weekend on the back of a horse, but is also a SUP gifted instructor — kids love to learn from other kids!  We’ll provide SUP lessons for first-time paddlers and refresher courses for those who need them before heading out to explore and discover all the wonderful signs of spring along the shores of the harbor.  There will be a light refreshments after the paddle.

Paddle Diva is also offering special promo for Mother’s Day.  Purchase gear for mom before Mother’s Day and get 10% off boards (that’s up to $135 off!) and 15% off paddles.

Paddle Diva’s Inspirational Woman: Alexia Lalli

This month, Paddle Diva is featuring my very own mom, Alexia Lalli, as our Inspirational Woman. Her spirit, tenacity and intelligence are what make her so inspirational to her friends and family, who refer to her affectionately as Lex.

paddle-diva-and-momAt 76, (77 on April 24!) Lex is enjoying every aspect of her busy life, making frequent trips to New York City from her cozy home in the Berkshire Mountains. She’s got a great cat, Willie, who is her constant companion. She’s an active member in the Hillsdale community within Columbia County working on the preservation and growth of this thriving area. Semi-retired, Lex still consults on projects that interest her. She’s also a member of the Century Club, a  private club founded in 1829 to promote interest in the fine arts and literature. If you’re lucky, she’ll invite you to dine and explore their amazing landmark building!

Rincon’s Beachboy SUP Race (April 11)

Check out some highlights from last year’s event.
