Summer time

Summer is race time.  The season really heats up with events going off everywhere and its time to sit down and figure out the schedule.  After high school graduation last May I took off for California and the Santa Monica Pier Paddle, from there it was the US SUP tour event at San Onofre Beach.

Olukai weekend with Dad

Just had a big race weekend right here on Maui. It’s nice to be able to race and go home to sleep in your own bed. It was the Olukai weekend which included a downwind elite SUP race and short citizens race on Saturday and an outrigger canoe race on Sunday. It was set on […]

Ocean View

A tropical update

Since the M2O race I have been all over the place racing, on rivers.  I was on the Weber River in Park City Utah, the Columbia Gorge in Hood River, Oregon and on the Potomac in Washington DC.  All very different races in different conditions but all very fun and unique.  Then to top it […]

Corn fields, storms, sky scrapers and racing

Touched down on Maui a few days ago.  As much as I love going places there is nothing better than getting off that plane and feeling the Maui air again. After leaving Florida, where we were hanging out for a month or so, we loaded up my Infinity race board and headed due north on […]

Florida SUP Clinic 2012

Welcome to Florida…

We arrived in Florida for our annual trip to visit friends and family just in time for a record setting storm that dropped 13 inches of rain on Pensacola in something like 4 hours!  The storms here can be wild but beautiful at the same time.  It’s fun to watch the dark storm clouds move […]

H2Indo - Newport Beach Film Festival

Movies, races and airplanes

Winter is over and it’s time to hit the road again.  My race season is underway and with races coming up here in Hawaii, California, Colorado and Illinois, just to name a few, that means some airport time.  It started last weekend with a great trip to California to check in with the Boardwork and […]
