Suzie Cooney - Professional Ocean Athlete and Personal Trainer - Joins Bluesmiths Development

We're excited to let you know that long-term friend and all-around stand-up paddle (SUP) and fitness guru, Suzie Cooney, will be working with us a key member of our R&D test crew. 

Suzie is one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic ocean athletes we know. As a sponsored paddle-boarder and windsurfer (Naish) as well as a deeply experienced personal trainer, Suzie has lots of research and development credentials.   

The way we see it, if we build gear that really works for Suzie's amphibious, ultra-active lifestyle, we will remain on-track in our quest to develop the hardest-working, most versatile waterwear on the planet. 

Suzie has been testing our gear for some time now. In these photos, she's wearing The Kanaha Hydrophobic Ocean Shirt, our next generation answer to the traditional sun-protective water shirt or rash guard.
