La Ventana, Mexico SUP Race

Congrats to new Starboard SUP team riders Ernie (EJ) Johnson and Brandi Baksic for winning the First Annual "World Championship" Paddleboard competition in Lake Havasu City, Arizona on Saturday.

We should be receiving a few pics soon taken from the London Bridge of the race...we'll post them up here...

Due to the volume of requests that we have received, our standalone JUKEBOX full of toons is back for those with Flash V.10 installed...leave it on in the background while you surf our site or others...



We are stoked to be working with Tim Hatler at Palapas Ventana to sponsor a SUP race in La Ventana Baja Mexico...a place that we've spent a bunch of time windsurfing and have vacation property at...sounds like a good excuse to paddle, surf, and see our friends and neighbors down there!

Tim is owner of Palapas Ventana, a Baja water sports hotel -
He runs a KiteBoard and SUP charity race every January here in La Ventana to
benefit the local schools - last year was the 4th annual and we raised
$18,000 USD and accomplished great projects at the schools.

This year we hope to raise $25,000 USD for the local schools...

La Ventana is a small Baja town 35 minutes from La Paz that has a
poplulation of 800 and is growing with tourism every year - this event helps
direct tourist dollars where they are needed and brings foreigners and
locals together in a very fun 4 day event.

The SUP race last year was a 2 miler and then a one mile final...

This year by popular demand the SUP race will be expanded...
Contestants will be transported to Cerralvo Island via pangas early in the
morning and then contestants will cross the channel 11 miles downwind back
to La Ventana...

This is the same course that the kiteboarders will follow the following
afternoon during peak wind hours...

There will also have a shorter 2 mile SUP race closer to shore that will be
very visible to all spectators...

In addition during the four day event major kite and sup manufacturers will
be displaying their latest gear for free demos (last year there were 15 brands
on site)

The KiteBoarder magazine will be
covering the event...
