101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

The long course SUP Racers race off the line

Race #2 in the 101 Surf Sports Paddle Race Series was a charitable affair with 100% of the proceeds going the UCSF Blood Cancer Research Fund. Thanks to the generosity of all involved we raised a record amount for our charitable events to the tune of $7210!

The day dawned crisp and chilly as the paddlers assembled for a fun time and a good cause. It was a special day of folks getting together to help raise dollars by way of paddle. A somber pall rolled over the paddlers as all were thinking about the events in Paris the day prior. Our hearts and minds were with France as we readied to race wishing Peace to return soon to Paris. We are super stoked that the race was sold out but this is a warning to all who want to join future races. It’s highly likely all future races will also sell out.

If you want to be part of the action it’s imperative you sign up online as soon as possible.We were lucky on the day to be joined by Charalambos (Babis) Andreadis. Babis was Cort’s oncologist and literally saved his life with a progressive, and at the time brand new, treatment for Lymphoma. What was a 10% survival rate for this rare form of Lymphoma has in 5 short years turned to a nearly 70% survival rate. These kinds of turnarounds don’t happen by accident – it takes money plain and simple. With that we thank everyone who paddled, donated, and volunteered to help push the fight forward.

As long as we are thanking people we have to talk about some of our incredible and giving business partners. First up the teams at SIC Maui Paddleboards and Jimmy Lewis who each donated Stand Up Paddleboards to be auctioned off. Quickblade Paddles, Surfstow Paddles, Riviera, and Werner Paddles all kicked in with paddles as well. O’Neill Wetsuits donated two full 4/3 wetsuits, Dakine chipped in with a super nice Paddle Jacket and Paddle Pants with Onyx Lifejackets putting 3 inflatable PFD’s in to the hopper.

Our normal team of supporters was also out in full force. Whole Foods market catered the event with Marin Brewing Company providing the libations. Hydration from Hint Water was, as always, ready to wash down the Mamie’s Pies, Kind Bars, and Three Twins Ice Cream. As the racers gathered in the morning it was Fruit Boxes galore courtesy the Fruit Guys who’ll do the same for you and deliver it right to your front door to boot.

The Fleet!

The racing action was near ideal. The cold morning air evaporated by the races start and the 101 strong group of paddlers took of the line with 6 miles of paddling for the long course crew and 2 miles for those pulling short line duties. With Stand Up Paddleboards, Outrigger Canoes, Surfski’s, Prone paddleboards, and Kayaks all getting in on the blue skies and sunshine. The best part of the day was the massive contingent o\f Keiki - that's kids in Hawaiian folks. By far our biggest youth turn out. People racing with dogs – check. Inflatables – you bet. Diversity by way of paddle is something we are super proud of. It’s all about fun in the sun with good friends.(photo below courtesy Kate Carpenter)

Thanks again has to go to all our Sponsors and once again the businesses that dug in and gave a little extra. Some special thanks to our ever trusty photographer Ron Steinau whose photo gallery you can enjoy here. Also a big shout of gratitude to all the volunteers who helped on the day. One more atta boy for San Francisco Bay Stand Up Paddleboard Tour Operator Drew Testwuide (Barbary Ghost) who manned the finish line. Last but not least to our team of employee’s here at the shop. We simply could not deliver the quality event without the quality people behind the scenes and we have that here in spades.
