Steamer Lane Santa Cruz 2010 Surftech SUP Shootout

Congrats to Hobie team rider Chuck Patterson and Starboard team rider Zane Schweitzer for their respective 1st and 2nd place finishes at the 2010 Surftech SUP Shootout held last weekend at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, Calif.




Chuck's proven his athleticism by winning prestigious races such as the 2008 Rainbow Sandals Battle of the Paddle, he's one of the leading stand up paddle big wave riders (Chuck was the first paddler to charge the Cortez Bank this winter) and he showed all who were at Steamer Lane on Santa Cruz's notorious Westside this weekend, that he is one of the world's best in waves of any size.

16 year old, Zane Schweitzer, got 2nd place in the Pro Division of the Surftech SUP Shootout at Steamer's Lane in Santa Cruz. He is super stoked and loving his 8'0"x26" Starboard Tiki.










This is wonderful result especially after just coming back from Australia with a 6th Place in the wave event and 1st Place in the Race, and the Sunset Beach Pro 1st in the Junior Division in Hawaii. He clearly is loving the wave events and is on a roll.

Hobie Foote Segue

Lots of activity at the shop lately...while Bill Foote was over from Maui visiting, Hobie shaper, Mark Johnson stopped by to dropoff more boards and to show us a new prototype surf model...



It was kewl to see them talking board design and checking each other's boards out...not very often do you see two shapers on the same page...









Mark talking race board design with our paddleracing team member Rich Schroeder...



Rich competed yesterday at the 9 mile 2009 Hennessey's US Paddleboard Championships
in Redondo Beach, California...haven't seen race results yet, but it sounds like Hobie team riders swept many of the top spots...

Mark shared a couple of pics of his new 14' carbon X-14 SUP race board that has been under wraps...they debuted at the US Championships yesterday...





Hobie's SUP program is not just focused on waves or racing...even though it's hard not to notice the performance of their products in the hands of riders like Chuck Patterson, three-time world longboard champ Colin Mcphillips, brothers T.J. and Bryce Saeman...etc...

The Hobie ATR (All Terrain Ride) SUP line has also been very successful...
The ATR line is the best of both worlds...a great stable paddling platform with great surfing characteristics.

The 10'6" x 28.75" ATR is a fav amongst our wahine clients...it's perfect fit for smaller paddlers who want a board that paddles with ease and stability.

Here's Allison and Serina driving away with their new Hobies on their cars heading to the beach to baptize them...Allison picked out the mango 10'6"...and her friend Serina opted for the aqua...





A frequent sight at our shop...stoked clients driving away with new SUP's heading to the beach...

we currently have 80 *real* SUP's in stock and in a few days with our next container, our selection will be over 130 *real* SUP's in stock...

HOLY SHMOLY!!!

Dunno if you've stumbled across any of the big wave SUP photos trickling out of Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca Mexico lately...

Edwin Morales professional bodyboarder and XXL Billabong Monster Tube Award Photo winner, snapped this sick pit of Starboard team rider Ekolu Kalama at Playa Zicatela, aka the Mexican Pipeline...



Chuck Patterson, Hobie team rider, was captured by photog Tim Ditty, dropping into some Puerto death pits...



You can catch CP's Puerto article at SUPSURFMAG

I want to see video of the wipeouts...the Mexican Pipe is known for breaking boards and people...heaps have died here...

I used to trek down to Puerto (and environ) a couple of times a Summer to get out of the small wave Summer doldrums in Santa Barbara...and to keep tuned up for mysto Central & North Coast big wave spots...





















Had the pleasure of sk8ing and trading barrels with talented (& tormented) Dogtown skater Jay Adams...



Jay bumped into a few problemos along the way of life...but, he's trying to get it back on track...



There's always counseling available...even, in Mexico...;-)
