Lanikila Race

Mahalos to the Lanikial Outrigger Canoe Club for hosting and opening their race to Stand Up Paddle Surfing.

This morning's race weather was great, especially after the nasty victory at sea episode yesterday. It was a small field for the Stand Up Paddle Surf Class but eh at least we had one. Vic for Malibu was there, I represented the San Clemente tribe and there was one other Stand Up Paddle Surfer whose name I never got, he showed up last minute to give us one class, mahalos. As for the Stand Up Paddle Surf equipment; Vic had a Surftech 12 footer (Ron House shape), I paddle surfed Ron's standamaran and the other Stand Up Paddle Surfer was on a Bark 16 footer.

The course was 5.5 miles, mostly in open water. I clocked in somewhere around one hour six minutes, then Vic on the stock 12 footer, then the 16 foot Bark board. There will be Stand Up Paddle Surf race pictures posted on soon and I'm working on an area to post official races results.

Paddle with Aloha.
