To keep his professional growth going Stalla dedicates himself to a strict training program created for both long and short distances. He also goes free diving and spear fishing a part of this maritime activities. He is also a member of the Mexican National Surf Team.

“My passion for the ocean, has given me the opportunity to enjoy this sport and make a career out of it. It was not till 2010 when I decided to travel to California to stir my career as a Pro Athlete in the Stand Up Paddle World”

“In 2010 I entered many SUP Races and SUP Surf contests, getting some impressive results. 2011 was a remarkable season winning multiple races. 2012 has been a great year so far. I see the potential that I can reach, I love what I do and I am determined to become the number 1 SUP Men Of The World. I`ve been hooked to this great sport, ever since”
