Shae Foudy won the World Title for the APP World Tour last season and finished third in the New York SUP Open last year. “Winning my first APP World title was one of the most amazing feelings ever. It didn’t really sink in until I got home and went for my first paddle at home. I remember I sat down after doing a hard piece and just started crying. It was that moment when I realized how big of a deal it was to me that I won this title. I had been dreaming of winning a world title since I first stepped on a paddle board,” Foudy previously told TotalSUP.com about her championship.
