Prepare to find the balance you have always sought….
Gina Bradley has changed many people’s lives while working with them on or in the water. Using her highly acute sense of reading others’ needs, she has developed Ten Guiding Principles, goals she pursues every day in her life and with clients. She has become one of the most sought after women for inspiration through athletic endeavors. Here, in her first book, Gina shares her wisdom and has made it truly accessible to all. Whether you are on the water or on land, through her guidance you can now live each day as if it is brand new and live your best, most fulfilled life.
In her Guiding Principles, Gina will take you “gently outside your comfort zone” and encourage you to “believe in your strength” and “dig deep” while being “open to the outcome”—all while set against the bucolic aquamarine environments of The Hamptons, Montauk, Boca Raton, and Puerto Rico. Like one of her principles, “positivity is contagious,” you will discover what thousands of students who have worked with Gina have already found: that you want to “enjoy the ride” every day with Gina, and you can, through her book and her brand, Paddle Diva.
About the Author
Gina Bradley is the Founder of Paddle Diva, a Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) business created in 2009 in The Hamptons, NY. She grew up in New York City and has lived in Grand Cayman Island and Cozumel, Mexico, and throughout the Caribbean where she worked in sales and marketing. Before moving to Long Island, Gina was a marketing executive and brand creator with several New York design and advertising firms. She is married and has two children. As a fitness instructor, a professional windsurfer, surfer, and PADI-certified Scuba Instructor, Gina became motivated by her love for the water to create Paddle Diva, which is now expanding to Florida, the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Northeast US Coast.
Gina divides her time between East Hampton, Boca Raton, and Rincon, Puerto Rico, with her sports-oriented family: husband Scott, a world class surfer and real estate developer; their daughter Emma, a dedicated working equestrian; their son James, an up-and-coming golf professional; and their mascot, Coconut, a Chihuahua/Pekingese mix.
"It was so peaceful and meditative to be on the water and in rhythm with nature once I started to get the hang of it. It certainly helps when you have a guide like Gina Bradley who makes even challenging conditions look effortless. I learned in this practice that beauty is balance and balance is beauty."
— Christy Turlington Burns, Founder of Every Mother Counts
