Strange - Starring Fiona Wylde

Life is strange sometimes and things can take an unexpected turn. And this is what happened to Fiona Wylde, one of the top pros on the international SUP scene. This year she discovered that she has Type 1 Diabetes and that her plans for the season must change.

However, the young athlete was not defeated by the news and seems to have it all sorted out now. Thanks to her perseveration and friends, her summer turned to be quite fun. And these days she is out on the water, doing what she does best.

A quick word from Fiona: “Type 1 Diabetes was not on my 2015 summer schedule, but sometimes plans change and you have to change with them. So instead of heading back to Europe for more competitions, I stayed at home in Hood River, Oregon to get this thing called Diabetes under control. After the first couple weeks, summer started looking at lot more fun. I got to have an amazing summer filled with, yes you guessed it, my very strange best friends, but I love them! Even between every insulin shot, and every finger prick, this summer has been a big one to remember with such happy memories.”

The clip below showcases some of the cool moments she experienced this summer. Enjoy!
