Huntington Beach Pro 2012: update

Aloha everyone,
It is with great disappointment that we let you know that we have had to postpone the Huntington Beach Pro Grand Slam until 2013. A last minute sponsorship pull out by a partner that was the driving force for this event has left too bigger hole for us to fill at this late stage, forcing us to have to cancel the event for this year and focus on a bigger and better version for 2013.

Interview with Scott Trudon at the 2012 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard Championships

molokai2oahu-2012-12

As I was leaving the finish, I ran into Scott Trudon who gave me some insight into his race experience at the 2012 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard Championships. Scott competed in the SUP 3-man division with teammates Mark Raaphorst and Junya McGurn. Mark is the mind and energy behind the SIC brand of race boards and these guys are in great shape. Scott told he he’s 54 years old but you would never be able to tell that when racing him because he’s still so darn fast and he’s still in top athletic shape.
