Olivia Piana


    I grew up in the French Alps far from my favorite watery playground. As a child, my mother was always very passionate about windsurfing and she taught me how at a very young age. I loved windsurfing, but I soon grew tired of waiting around for the wind. In 2010 I discovered sup and was able to catch a few small waves. I was instantly hooked! I love stand up paddling because you can literally do it in any conditions…no more waiting around for the wind 🙂 I also love racing and meeting other athletes and how it brings out the best in everyone.
