2009 Surftech Jay Moriarity Memorial Paddleboard Race Title Decided by:06 Seconds

2009-jay-race_img_0.jpg

Santa Cruz, Calif. (June 13, 2009) – With a light fog greeting them at dawn, the record number of racers packing New Brighton Beach at the 8th Annual Surftech Jay Moriarity Memorial Paddleboard Race presented by CLIF Bar had little idea what was in store for them on the 12 mile course. Competitors discussed various course strategies while loading up on nutrition bars, gels and hydration provided by Jay Race Presenting Sponsor CLIF Bar. In 2008, Jay Race champion Chad Carvin of Laguna Hills, broke the course record in a time of 1:51:58. Would we see another course record set on this day? With Chad not able to come defend his title, would this be the year a local takes top honors once again? All questions would soon be answered.

Olukai Hoolaulea Race – Painful but Fun

olukai-race-82.JPG

Mark Raaphorst from S.I.C. kept talking about the Olukai race that went on May 17 and 18, 2009 and it sounded like fun so I flew from Oahu to Maui to participate. I was excited because Maliko downwinders are legendary and I was ready for the action. Before the race weekend, I kept looking at the wind forecasts and got worried because the forecast was for a headwind and not the awesome 25+ mph tailwind that we see and hear about.

Moonlight Beach Paddleboard Race
Presented by Waterman Applied Science and Maui Jim Sunglasses
May 16th, 2009

Thank you to all the athletes who came out to enjoy a great day at the Annual Moonlight Beach Paddleboard Race. Our 2 lap format made for an exciting day for participants and spectators alike. Encinitas locals got treated to some incredible athletic performances from the likes of San Clemente’s Rob Rojas who dominated the field on his Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) followed closely by a hotly contested Unlimited race between Tyler Anderson and George Plsek. George narrowly lost his sprint to the finish, but it should be known that only an hour before he completed the Encinitas 5k Run which leaves Sunday’s Sprint Triathlon and 1 mile Ocean Swim to complete the “MachoMan” competition. Others competing in all four of the Festival’s events include Kate Major, Tom Hinds, Scott Tinley, Kim McDonald and Deon Lourens.
