joe-blair-2012-05-visit-04

Here’s a new surfboard from Joe Blair which also doubles as SUP board for kids. This is a production sandwich construction board. My 9 year old could handle it pretty well but my 7 year old was struggling to carry it. Both were able to paddle and balance with no problem at Cardiff. I may have to get some for my boys.

Livio Menelau showing the SIC line and Ion camera at Surf Expo, Sept 2012

Blue Planet Surf

Livio is a Brazilian who made Maui his home. He is one of the fastest SUP racers and a funny guy to hang out with. We ended up sitting next to each other on the red eye flight from LA to Orlando. We arrived in Orlando at 6 am and headed off to the Surf Expo demo day, which was a great event. Despite the sweltering heat and humidity, being outside and on the water was more fun than being inside the convention center all day at the Surf Expo for the next 3 days.

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.
