My SUP battle of the paddle 2014 wave sequence

Well, I have just returned home from California where the most prestigious SUP race of the year was held at Salt Creek. The Battle of the Paddle 2014.

The conditions were pristine with 4-5 ft sets coming through which was great if you were returning to the beach, not trying to punch through it on the way out..

I finished in the top 10 in the short course event, which seemed to be a comedy of errors the whole way, but backed up a lot better on the second day of competition with a 1st place in the womens 12’6 distance event and joining my Naish team mates to win the bragging rights in the teams event where each team includes one female.

Salt creek at Laguna is a gorgeous spot away from the hustle of LA which may for some fantastic footage from the weekend.

A good friend of mine (thanks Alain) captured some great shots of me coming in on a wave in a sequence which were to good to not share…karla gilbert supkarla gilbert naishkarla gilbert supkarla gilbert bopkarla gilbert supkarla gilbert ironwoman8911and then a big sigh that you have made the wave without stacking it  ….
