This week's Bellyak featured athlete is Kim Harrison! Kim woke up one morning with a non-traumatic spinal cord injury called transverse myelitis. She now uses a wheelchair for mobility, but won her bellyak in a competition and immediately took it out paddling. "I was surprised at how comfortable it was, and I also discovered that it was very difficult to turn it over. That fact made me feel really comfortable in it. Another thing I liked about the Bellyak was when I was laying on my stomach, my body fit down into the Bellyak. A surfboard would be flat and cause my back to hurt if I stayed on it for very long". Keep rocking, Kim! We think you're awesome!
