Dana Point 9-man outrigger race

I always like changing it up and doing everything I can that encompasses water. This year I have been very fortunate to train and paddle with Team California outrigger team. We all train super hard at everything OC1, surf ski, SUP, surf, swim etc. and then we put it all together in the 6 man outrigger canoe and race.

This 9-man outrigger race was out of Dana Point Harbor up the coast to Laguna beach and back down past the harbor and in. This is part of the 9-man series where each team of 9 guys traded out 3 guys every 10-15 minutes in the 6-man canoe thru out the entire race which was about 11-12 miles.

These races are super exciting and what we all look forward to each year. We placed 1st in the Masters and 3rd overall.
