March 3, 2010 (Santa Cruz, CA) – The stage is set for the 2nd Annual “Surftech SUP Shootout at the Lane”, happening March 26th – 28th. It’s been a record El Nino winter with pumping surf slamming the California coast week after week. The result of all this wave action (other than broken relationships & loss of jobs) is the massive sand bar that’s developed along the cliffs at Steamer Lane!
Happening in conjunction with the Santa Cruz Surf Kayak Festival, for a few hours on the weekend of March 26-28 stand up paddlers will have Steamer Lane all to themselves! Pro level competitors can compete in the “Elite” division for prizes and bragging rights, while intermediate competitors who want to take advantage of the Lanes empty line-up can enter the “intermediate” division. The event will include more than $2,000 in prizes, Silent Auction, SUP demos and clinics, Manufacturer Expo and after parties.
