MICHAEL BOOTH. ELITE WATERMAN… WORLD CHAMPION.

“Success is no accident. It’s hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all loving what you do”. – Michael Booth. 

Michael Booth; known as the Aussie SUP Powerhouse continuing to dominate in the sport internationally, is fast becoming the most highly regarded and respected SUP contender world-wide. 

The last four years has seen the best of Booth as he has become APP World Tour Distance series champion, 3 x World Distance Race Champion, 3 x Australian Champion, 3 x European Tour Champion. Needless to say, Michael continues to impress his sponsors and loyal followers.

Michael prides himself on the quality and consistency of his performance and believes that success can only be achieved through hard work, self-belief and dedication – words which he continues to live by during both the off season and the racing season. 

There is no doubt that Michael is both physically and mentally strong, pursuing in setting himself some huge personal goals to be the best in the sport as well as encouraging others to reach their goals.

The Challenge of M20

The Challenge of M20

I was really happy with my preparation coming into M20. Even though it was a short 4 weeks in Perth, with zero wind every day, I felt like I had done enough to have a good race. It always hard bouncing around the world doing different events, distances and crafts but I enjoy the challenge and always do the best I can with the time I have. Normally I would like to do a 3-4month prep for a race like this but its just not possible with my hectic schedule. Coming home after Europe those long miles were tedious but after doing the Surf Ski Molokai with the Shaw and Partners Race Team in late May this year I knew it was a must. I conditioned the body the best I could, I paddled, ran, swam and got the kilometres right up to an exhausting level. It’s pretty lonely out there when doing 40km paddles so it was great to have fellow west Aussie Matt Bowbridge also preparing for his first crossing to join in on some of those long grinds. I was lucky to have Dede, Kristi, Denise and Gary driving me around.

Corfu Emerald Cup 2019

Corfu Emerald Cup 2019

This win will go down as one of the biggest of my career, not necessarily because of the event or the status but because of the distance I was able to put on the best paddlers in the world. Winning by 2minutes + was never my intention all I wanted to do was race with no mistakes and race confidently. And I did just that.

After Bilbao I was a bit disappointed to lose the way I did. I always hate making mistakes but when you do it when it counts it hurts more. But it also really fires you up for the next race and makes you not want that feeling again. I had a really good week of cross training and resting in Hossegor which allowed me to get over some of the travel we had sustained in the past month.

Bilbao 2019

Bilbao 2019

What a race! Sprint finish to the final moment. Bruno got this one but I’m sure we will have many more battles for the years to come.

After Molokai I was pretty exhausted from racing every weekend in different parts of the world. Time zones, cars, planes, hotels, Airbnb’s, admin etc etc… all of it takes a toll mentally and physically. So we decided to go home and reset for a few days before flying to Bilbao. There was some consideration about going back to San Sebastián to race, but I decided it would be wise to have a weekend off (otherwise I would have raced 9 weekends in a row).

Next guest is Fiona Wylde on the BOOTHCAST and it was fantastic to share stories with her. She's an incredible athlete and person both on and off the water. Fiona has had World Tour victories in SUP surfing, a SUP racing World Title, the Euro Tour SUP Overall Champion last year, among many other titles. Growing up in Hood River, Oregon she became a junior windsurf World Champion, got into SUP and had the realisation of a type 1 diabetes diagnosis. That didn't stop her and has such an amazing approach towards life. So much gets unpacked in our conversation and it was awesome to have her on the show!

Todays BOOTHCAST is with Danny Ching who is one of the pioneers of SUP racing as we know it today. We talk about his upbringing in Redondo Beach CA, his many sporting endeavours including SUP, OC1 and Kayaking. Danny was a Panamerican Games representative for kayak, a 3 time Battle of the Paddle SUP Champion, a 2x Carolina Cup Champion and a 2x OC1 M2O champion. His success wasnt created over night.

Today I was fortunate to interview arguably the best surfski paddler in the world at the moment Cory Hill. I've been lucky enough to know Cory for a long time and was there for many of his first wins and tough early training sessions. In this chat we talk about how it all started, what motivates him, how he trains, turning negatives into positives, the mistakes he's made, what he does day to day and how important a solid support network is. We also discuss key moments in his career like winning Molokai, Worlds, The Doctor and some of his failures including his infamous rock incident at Molokai. Thanks again Cory for giving me your time for this, I hope you all enjoy this one!
