There Aren't Even Enough Synonyms for the Word "Awesome!"
As our group of adventure seekers started their Water People experience, they were greeted by a perfect sunset, a Caribbean breeze and even a pod of Humpback whales breaching on the horizon. It was surreal.
Each unique Water People day was filled with tons of exciting, fun and challenging coaching sessions and activities. At the same time, there was rejuvenating down time to just sink in and enjoy the amazing house, the amazing setting and the amazing weather!
Morning yoga with Aaron Vitali was a massive hit as his gentle and experienced nature as a waterman and yoga teacher came through during each flowing moment. PaddleSURFing and SUP paddling lead by Cascadia SUP Head Coach Jeff Briley challenged the group in all the best ways and gave them those happy, tired smiles. During her nutrition session, Dr. Julie Briley dove deep into the inner workings of our bodies as they process the delicious and nutritious food we eat and guided the group through the preparation of one of her favorite recipes, Rainbow Quinoa Blackbean Salad. And, our private pool at the house and the beautiful Caribbean were the perfect venues for the basic freediving breath training session Alex Llinas lead the group through.
Then there were the unscheduled, spontaneously amazing moments, the lifelong connections the group will share and the hilarious and, at times, ridiculous parts of the day. "Do you have iced coffee? Good, we'll take 9 of them" blended into another PaddleSURF session and then into a late night boogie fest at the Calypso Bar nearby. And let's not forget the exhilarating E-foiling session with our buddy Mikey from SeaKindly PR Foil School that ilicited a simple, "that was the coolest thing I have ever done in my life" from one of our participants.
All of these elements seamlessly flowed to complete the deeply good times at Water People 2019!

Water People Testimonials
"Water People was like a soul-nourishing, life-changing luxury vacation, skills course, and wellness retreat all rolled into one incredible week. I ran out of adjectives to describe how amazing it was midway through day 1. Every aspect of this experience was first-class. The coaches, accommodations, food, location, gear provided - just everything was top-notch! What an unforgettable week! I HIGHLY recommend it and will make it a priority to participate in future events that the Cascadia crew put together." - Water People 2019 Participant
"Water People in Puerto Rico was the trip of a lifetime. Many times before a major trip your expectations are set so high. This week met all those hopes and expectations and went so far beyond. The staff was absolutely incredible they are each uniquely specialized and are able to teach to participants at all levels. Each day was well planned with activities as well as down time and the home was out of this world. So blessed to be a part of this experience. Can’t wait till next year." - Water People 2019 Participant
