In Episode 40 we speak with Aimee Spector, a legendary woman of the water who excels strongly in multiple paddle sports while raising her son and giving back through the Ocean of Hope Campaign. Aimee takes us through her passion for the ocean canoe where she has completed 20+ Catalina Channel crossings, her stories of prone board paddling with 2 other women from Cuba to Florida to raise money for charity, as well as many great insights into her world of competitive paddling. Aimee shares a great perspective on the community of woman paddlers who she derives inspiration from and her overall passion for the people, places, and challenges that the ocean has brought her.

Thanks for sharing Aimee's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of Aimee on her Instagram page, Facebook, her own website, and Ocean of Hope website. There is also some fun stuff on the This Ocean Life Instagram and Facebook pages and we are also on Twitter ranting about stuff.
