Marie Carmen


    I was born in Cidra, Puerto Rico. When I was little I practice gymnastics and kayaking. Currently, I practice standup paddling, surfing, kite surfing, swimming, canoeing and scuba diving. I’m a water sports enthusiast and co-founder of the Flippers Paddle School (water sports school), we help people achieve their water activity goals. I graduated from La Academia La Milagrosa in Cayey. Currently, I’m finishing a bachelor degree in Biology at the University of Puerto Rico. I also have a certification as a SUP instructor through the World Paddle Association.

    My goal is to become a professional standup paddler. The experience that I will gain I want to share it with the young ones that are starting this sport, helping them to grown both, physically and mentally. This will help the sport to grown in popularity so we can have in the future more passionate and dedicated athletes.
