I started practicing this sport at 7 years old as therapy to help develop my left shoulder.  I had a brachial plexus injury at birth and as a consequence I have Erb’s Palsy.  The reduced function of my arm has never stopped me or defined me.  Since the day I started doing paddleboard I fell in love with this sport and the contact I could have with nature and the ocean.  I am extremely proud to represent my island of Puerto Rico for the first time in an ISA World Championship.

My name is Nimsay García, I'm 21 years old. Im a full time college student and athlete. I'm a pioneer in what is female SUP surfing and what is professional SUP racing here in Puerto Rico and i intend to keep spreading awareness of our representation in this sport, spoken or in the water. I'm part of a surfing and Paddleboard school named Paddle Sur. Me and my family run it. I love speaking about my sport in different aspects of my life, represent it in my art, and educate different social groups about it. One of my biggest dreams for the SUP sport is for it to reach the Olympics and for it to be in college sports too, globally.

It is my second time enjoying an ISA Event. I am an elementary school teacher who really enjoys her profession. Even so, my priority has always been my three kids no matter how old they get. I started doing SUP 13 years ago and prone paddleboarding one year ago. It has been an amazing journey learning new techniques as I grow in the sport. Throughout my training, I've gained strength and balance not only within the sport, but in life.
