Stacey Mac was born in Massachusetts (Boston), but is resident in Ostional, Guanacaste (Costa Rica) where she works as a SUP instructor.

The sea and the boards are a part of her. She is a very strong athletic woman, she loves to ride all kinds of boards: snowboards, longboard skateboards, surfboards and stand-up paddlesurf boards ( “SUP Surf”).

The first time she rode a wave was 43 years old at Coastguard Beach in Cape Cod near where she live on the South Shore of Boston, Massachusetts.

Her passion for the sport was such that she began surfing five days a week to learn quickly was soon competing and winning many SUP Surf tournaments. Eventually she moved to Costa Rica where the sea conditions were better and the waves bigger. There she was trained with INFINITY SURFBOARDS, guided by DAVE BOEHNE

Stacey had friends in Boston and Costa Rica who wanted to learn from her, so, she decided to go to San Diego to become a certified SUP instructor with the PADDLEFIT organization and WORLD PADDLE ASSOCIATION . Nowadays Stacey has two SUP locations for her company, (SUP SONAS) in Costa Rica and Boston respectively,  where she teaches other people the passion that changed her life.

“I’m not the greatest athlete. I may not be able to beat the best SUP surfers in the world, but I still want to inspire others to follow their dreams and conquer their fears.

I want ‘Spread the Stoke’! I also want to teach people to be careful in the waves when surfing, to respect the sea and play together with peace and love. One love. Pura vida!
