April Zilg is the hardest working woman in baseball... I mean, stand up paddling. She is a robust repast of technical knowledge and powerful skill. Her athleticism is a constant work in progress as we've seen her transform herself year after year to become one of the fastest women paddlers on the planet. But, what makes AZ stand out is her full on, 100% fantastic personality: warm, welcoming, & perpetually stoked. April is a true waterwoman and a great human being. We are honored to have her contribute to Standup Journal.
