We're S T O K E D !!!

Hey now...
Sorry about all of the missed calls, shop visits, and emails today...but, our whole team is just getting back from the first race of the
SoCal Ocean Racing Winter Series...at La Jolla today...





Team StandUp Paddle Sports carried the momentum that we had garnered from the Battle of the Paddle right into this race with another quite respectable showing from our
team commitment to the developing sport of standup paddle racing...



:: Vicki Mills 1st Place SUP Women :: 1st Place OC-1 Women

:: John Becker 2nd Place SUP Mens Unlimited

:: Rich Schroeder 2nd Place SUP Mens Stock

:: Bryan Fernandez 3rd Place SUP Mens Stock

John's start was kinda sabotaged...otherwise, we believe he would have had the gold...regardless, he still bested Eric Starnes, who came in 2nd
at the Battle of the Paddle...no easy feat with 253 other competitors vying for the silver medal...

A few of our racers were missing from this post race photo...NICE boards!!!



Here's 1st Place winner Vicki Mills...only her 3rd time on a standup board...but, her background is outrigger paddling...she still holds a record for Molokai racing
from 1995...after this great initial SUP result...she paddled her OC-1 in another race with similar results...1st Place...GO VICKI!!!



Anyways...more pics and story later...off to dinner...

Oh yeah...thanks again for your patience today...it was worth it to our team...

To show our gratitude...and to pay you guys back for your loyalty and patronage over the last years...we've sold well over 1000 SUP's...
there will be lots of unadvertised specials at the shop tomorrow...come in...give a shout out locally (or toll free)...or just ping us on email...

Parting shot...fun surf the last couple of days...even with race logistics we still scored some fun ones in trunks...

P.S. What up with all of the wetsuit clad surfers in San Diego?!?!...the water temp is 66* F...air temps over 80*...
