Maggie Adams knows how to go for it.  Even in bumpy, choppy conditions she was pushing the boundaries and maneuvering her board through some serious slop at the Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race & Ocean Festival last weekend.  Her GoPro proves it.

Perfect Barrel!  GoPro snaps a magnificent moment for Maggie Adams

Maggie, owner and CEO of her own paddleboard lesson company Blue Paddle Sup, didn’t hesitate to take a chance and make her move in last weekend’s Paddleboard Race & Ocean Festival at the Santa Monica Pier.

As we know, sometimes things don’t always go as planned.

Her GoPro caught this epic shot of the nose of her board pearling, and due to the lens’ effects, making a perfect barrel for Maggie to slide through on her way back to the beach.  Way to go, Maggie!  We respect EFFORT and this shot tells the truth of that.

If you’re in the Carlsbad area, be sure to look her up at Blue Paddle Sup.  This gal’s got grit and grins to spare!
