Women of Watersports


Welcome to the Women of Watersports, a place for women to seek knowledge, be inspired, get empowered, and explore the world of paddleboarding, surfing, foiling, and more. It's also a place for women to connect with like-minded women supporting each other on their journey.

You can follow along or join the conversation on our SIC Maui's Facebook group SIC Women of Watersport or join one of the many events hosted by the SIC Women of Watersports athletes and instructors.

 

BE INSPIRED

Women are motivated to explore on the water for many different reasons. Some come to slay the dragon or find peace.

Others come to keep their sense of adventure alive. Whatever the reason is, we hope you’ll find inspiration from the SIC Maui women of watersports.

Bri first started SUP fishing by building her own setup on a surf stand-up paddleboard and was soon discovered by BIC SUP one day as she was preparing to paddle out. Bri’s love for kayak fishing and now her arsenal consists of offshore kayak fishing, free diving, and paddleboard fishing.

After high school, Seychelle took off sailing for several years and traveled around the world, working as a yacht crew and owning boats. In 2014 Seychelle went through a divorce, gave up sailing, moved back to the Florida Keys, and discovered the sport of SUP.

From her very first race, Seychelle was hooked. She has since become the 3 x Chattajack Champion, 3 x SUP 11 City Tour Grand Champion, 3 x SEA Paddle NYC Champion, The Guinness World Record holder for the Greatest Distance Paddled on SUP in 24 hours, and the 2019 APP Standup Paddle World Champion.

Living in Melbourne Beach with her husband and her dog, you will find Seychelle paddling, surfing, and relaxing on the beach. She combines her passion for living her best life with her passion for deep health into a platform for transformation. Seychelle now focuses on coaching women, helping them achieve their goals through optimum health, and sharing her knowledge from her many struggles along the way to what it truly means to succeed.
