Lucy was an integral part of the first Go with the FLOW day, teaching and inspiring all the ladies in attendance. A talented waterwoman, Lucy is also passionate about health and fitness, and promoting the benefits of an active lifestyle. We’re looking forward to getting down to the Lagoon for a session!
Flow is awesome, it’s really great to get more ladies involved in watersports and have a network available where ladies can go for support and advice. I know through experience that windsurfing with a load of men can be pretty scary – so more girls the better! Looking forward to more FLOW days at Hove lagoon!
In Lucy’s kit bag:
Fanatic All wave 8.10.
Kialoa paddle – so pretty!
Unlimited use of windsurf and wakeboard gear at Hove lagoon – perks of the job!
Nalu Beads – also very pretty!
Lucy McCormick is a Brighton-born watersports and fitness enthusiast who has a broad experience of windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and snowboarding.
“Throughout school I always loved sports, taking part in loads of sporting events. As soon as I left school I qualified as a fitness instructor, and soon after got involved in watersports.
I first learnt to windsurf at Hove lagoon which is an awesome place to both learn and develop your windsurfing. I really got into windsurfing and soon became an instructor, completing my instructor course out in Vass.
Since then I have worked both in the UK and abroad teaching windsurfing.
I have spent a couple of years in the French Alps developing my snowboarding which was wicked fun.
In 2008 I began working at Hove lagoon, where I have since developed a passion for SUPing as well as wakeboarding and surfing.
I really want to help promote fitness and its benefits in the watersports industry, most recently I am working towards my yoga teacher qualification to promote the benefits of yoga to the watersports industry.
This year, along with Hove lagoon I have helped set up Lagoon Fitness, which is due to open in April 2012. Lagoon Fitness will offer SUP fitness classes, INDO board fitness classes and both land and beach based exercise classes.
Aiming to offer awesome classes, which use the outside surroundings and the water as exercise tools.
SACK OFF THE GYM AND GET INVOLVED LADIES!”
