Santa Cruz PaddleFest Surf Finalists 2018

We just wrapped up the 32nd annual Santa Cruz Paddlefest. The scores are settled and everyone is absolutely stoked. We had sun, wind, waves, rain, smiles, more waves, and an amazing roster of athletes participating over the weekend. It truly feels like we put on an event that Dennis would have been proud of. That’ll mark a success in our books and we hope to see you all next year!

The Santa Cruz Paddlefest 10k presented by powercrunch went off with a mixed bag of conditions. On the start line everything was fairly glassy, but as competitors belted it out around the wharf they discovered there was a deceiving bump on the water. Conditions turned out another set of blistering fast finish times for our competitors.

Our Elite Men’s race finished with quite a bit of drama! Slater Trout crossed the finish line first but, due to not wearing the required safety equipment he was forced to be disqualified. Mo and Tyler ended up battling it out on the sand with Mo barely holding onto what will end up as a first place finish. It breaks our heart to play the bad guy but the Coast Guard sets rules for these events which must be followed if we are going to continue them. 

The Women’s Elite field had a slightly larger spread to them with Jade Howson coming in a full 40 seconds before April Zilg and finally Candice Appleby.

We are absolutely stoked to see a large number of young and new faces this year and we certainly look forward to watching those young athletes grow! We are so happy to put on another successful event and are excited to be headed into the finals days of our surfing competition!
