HanoHano Ocean Challenge

Mahalos to HanoHano Outrigger Canoe Club for hosting a great event this morning. Oh and special mahalos from the bottom of my happy belly to L&L's for the local ono grindz.

Today's course was an out and back 4.75 mile course through Mission Bay. There was a lot more entires than usual for the Stand Up Paddle Surf class. South Orange County, (mostly San Clemente, Capo Beach, Dana Point, San Juan) came down with 7 of Stand Up Paddle Surf enteries. All kinds of boards were represented out there. Kyle (Alejondro) took first again on the standamaran shaped by Ron House, and Brad (B-rad) came in third on Ron's Coastal Cruiser, I finished fifth on Ron's stock Stand Up Paddle Surfboard (and in my mind 1st in the stock class, lol!) . Way to go Ron!

Good fun was had by all. We met some new faces, howzit Brent and Jay (Jay, I tried to get you and your fancy board at the line...) More pics for this event click here.

Paddle with Pride, Paddle with Aloha.
