Paddler Spotlight -- Chiu!!

Dunking day (Birthday): 

March 10th
If you could have an endless supply of any food item, what would you have?
Dim Sum
How long have you been paddling and what were you thinking when you got into Space?
4+ years...What the hell am I doing!? My body was not made for this kind of punishment
Who got you into paddling and why do you do it week in and week out?

Ikemotos (Rick and Megan). I did it for Stephen originally, but Joe's excruciating practices brought me back week after week.

Favorite or notable Space Dragon moment(s)?
Too many, couple off the top of my head:

  1. Pretending to be sick in Joe's boat during practice for his "surprise"
  2. First time steering in a tournament all with wind up at the beach. 

How do you prep yourself for a Race?
No food.
What do you do when you're not paddling? Hobbies, activities, interests?
Walking and golf.

Any advice for newbie paddlers?
"If I can do it, you can do it."
Paddling-wise, what particular goals do you have for yourself and for the team?

To win another medal in the SD old people's boat (aka the GERI-CREW!) EHHH??

What makes a champion?

Hard work.
If you could change one thing about the Team what would it be?
More practice!
Best thing about being a Space Dragon?
The SD family.
Two of the most interesting characters you've met through the team.

Devant and Ceez.
If you were to trade any SD teammate for any celebrity, who would it be?
No one.
If you were to be stranded on an island with any 3 SD paddlers, who would you choose to get-by and pass the time with?
      Hmm...Stranded and to survive on an island...
Rod, the Skipper who'll protect me. 
Brian, the Professor who'll build things.

...and ay SD will do as Ginger
