ReCap by Connor

The 2013 San Francisco America’s Cup Open was a great event. It was held at Marina Green and the event site was called the America’s Cup Village. It was right where the 45’s were racing for the Youth Cup. The Golden Gate Bridge was only a couple miles away to the west. With the fog rolling in it was sometimes covered and not visible. There were loads of boats in the bay watching all the 45’s racing. Action packed weekend.

2013 Hawaii Paddleboard Championship – Duke’s Race

2013-hawaii-paddleboard-championship-dukes-race-75

This year’s Duke’s Oceanfest had incredibly nice weather…lucky we live in Hawaii. After a long trip through Alaska, it was nice to be home, although I must say we were blessed with super good weather in Alaska too. The SUP distance race during the Duke’s Oceanfest is called the Hawaii Paddleboard Championships and started off as a lie down paddleboard race but with the explosion in the popularity of stand up paddle (SUP) racing the race has a majority of SUP racers. Christian Bradley said the conditions were pretty good for the majority of the race with decent 10-20 mph trade winds but the tide was going in the wrong direction which made it a bit slower than normal.

Recap of Event by Connor

The 2013 Ultimate SUP Showdown was a huge success. This event took place on Oahu and it was a part of the famous Duke Kahanamoku Event. This event was alittle different in the sense that when I signed up I was in both the surf part and the race part. All the competitors had to compete in both the race and surf – which made it a fun day at the beach.
