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

Paddleboard Racing with your dog at 101 Surf Sports

We raised over $7000 today for a great cause, had a great time, and spent the day with good friends. Thanks to all those who paddled with a special nod of thanks to the weather gods who smiled upon us in a big way. (pictured who is leading this pack?)

The cause was the fight against cancer with all the proceeds on the day’s race, $7170 dollars worth to be specific, being donated to UCSF to use in the fight against cancer. The day started off with an inspirational update from the shop’s owner, Cort Larned, on the return of his cancer and his fight to beat it back. Cort was joined by his Oncologist Babis Andreadis who shared a quick lay-of-the-land on the new cancer treatments, including the promise of some of the new immuno-therapy treatments. Babis thanked the assembled fleet, and praise the grass root efforts like this that are helping making these new treatments possible.

Tandem Starboard Paddleboard Racing!

With bright blue skies and windless conditions, we could not have asked for a better day. We had a plethora of Stand Up Paddleboards, Outrigger Canoes, Surfski’s, Kayaks, and Prone Paddleboards queued up for action. We love the diversity of our fleet and while  the highlights on the day were many, we have to single out Kathleen Shamp and Amanda Kahn-Kirby who completed the race with their dogs on board. Now that’s our style!

Outrigger Canoes blast off the starting line

With paddlers coming from Santa Cruz to Lake Tahoe we were stoked to see so many people pitching in to help. With that said nobody pitched in bigger than Jimmy Lewis Stand Up Paddleboards. Jimmy donated the board of winners choice to our live auction. One Carbon Sidewinder ready for action – congratulations and thank you Alex! (Pictured below the 14ft SUP Long Course Start)

Starboard and SIC Maui both stepped up big time with the donation of a 2017 Drive and a 2017 Airglide 12’6 respectively. O’Neill wetsuits got in on the action with a wetsuit, while Maui Jim and Suncloud both donated sunglasses to the winners of our raffle. A thanks to John Hadley for the Olive Oil made right here in the Bay Area that rounded out a supper successful raffle.

Classy brands fighting cancer!

We could not have done the event without the help of our normal support team. With a cornucopia of fresh fruit from the Fruit Guys, bottomless boxes of Kinds new (and delicious) breakfast bars, and a never-ending supply of Hint Water it was one well ‘nutritioned’ crew. After a long hard paddle nothing is quite so tasty as the brew from the Petaluma Based 101 North Brewing. Ok so one thing is just as tasty and that’s Mamie’s Pies chased down with Three Twins Ice Cream. We implore you to support the businesses that support our sport. So yes, drinking beer and eating pie is all we ask – you in? (Pictured below our resident otter even showed up to say thanks!)

We have to also mention the special appearance of Mike Wang. Mike was not racing but paddled all the way from Angel Island to the shop on his inflatable. Mike is circumnavigating San Francisco Bay by paddleboard and is raising money as he goes. Mike is padding to support the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.

Thanks as well to our volunteers. With Jen Fuller on the starting line and Mimi Towle and Leigh Claxton running front on the catering we were moving like a well-oiled machine. Thanks guys.
