Watermans Surfaid paddle

Watermans sunscreen put together a great 6 mile SUP race in Dana Point off Doheney state beach. Conditions were smooth with a slight South swell and Southerly breeze.

I decided to paddle a new 14′ Hobie Carbon race board to see how I would fare against the 18′ unlimited guys. Unfortunately each board class started a 2 minutes apart, but I managed to catch up deep into the middle of the unlimited class before finishing 1st in my 14′ ft division.

The race was well run, with a good crowd and all for a good cause.

No matter how tired I am, I always like to finish strong.

Micky Munoz and Sparky of Rainbow sandals; these gentlemen keep me inspired.
