Stand up paddleboard racing on San Francisco bay with Godzilla 

Blues skies and sunshine (aka the glowing orb) made a cameo appearance at race number 4 in the 101 Surf Sports Paddle Race Series and we took full advantage. (Pictured Godzilla at the finish line)

With a cadre of Surfski, Outrigger Canoe, Stand Up and Prone Paddleboards, and kayaks this was one race that celebrated diversity in all its facets. We served up our normal 6-mile-long course around the islands alongside the 2-mile short course that peek-a-boo’s out in to the bay before returning home.

While many of the day’s efforts were hard fought, we have to single out a few for some special mention. First up was Zach Alva’s paddle of the day performance in the Surfski division on the long course. This was Zach’s first time racing in the adult division and Mr. Alva served notice with an impressive 3rd place finish. Next up was Starboard Ambassador Patrick Alteri. Patrick need help from Treston Vorac however to make it happen. Why the need for help? They paddled a tandem Starboard inflatable! Now that’s our speed – nice work boys.(pictured Vincent Huang finishing in a flurry of bubbles)

Bubbles at the finish line. Now that's finishing in style.

After racing we treated the racers to a taste-o-surfski. We busted out our new fleet of Epic Surfski’s and got the paddlers to take a taste of pure speed. We saw many ‘oh-my’ expressions when they felt the pure glide these super-fast boats can deliver.(pictured below is Mark Prior on his V7 Epic Surfski narrowly besting Robert Lambros at the finish line)

We have to pass on a heaping helping of thanks to all our supporting partners. Hint Water was flowing and Kind Bars were in ample supply. 101 North Brewing did their thing and did it well. We have to make a special mention of thanks to Derek and Amy O’Connell. The O’Connell’s are moving to Oregon and someone had to help them out by taking possession of their Kegerator. We were happy to oblige. Thanks Derek and Amy! The Fruit Guys balance us out with a cornucopia of fresh fruit. Fresh fruit you can have delivered straight to your home or office. DO IT! There was not a sugar low among any of the racers. Why? Mamie’s Pie’s and Three Twins Ice Cream that’s why. Thanks, as well to the San Rafael Police boat for keeping everyone safe on the water. (pictured is Onboard SUP Yoga's Ashley Taylor in perfect form crossing the line.)

Onboard SUP has racing game!

A special thanks to everyone who raced. We are so stoked to see so many first-time racers and the growing fleet of kids taking to racing. Keiki power is powered by parents and for that we all say thank you.
