Jay Moriarity Race 2011

Top Ten Reasons to Do the Jay Race:

1. Jay
2. Santa Cruz paddlers are really nice people (so much aloha!)
3. It's fun (for flat water, there are some bumps to catch!) 
4. The after-party is great (food, drinks, music, and great compnay)
5. Your choice of course (long, short, relay)
6. Your choice of craft (paddleboard, SUP, unlimited, stock)
7. Interesting and beautiful course
8. Great competition (got to race against SUP phenom Candace Appleby!)
9. Surftech puts together a mean goodie bag (helped out by the sponsors!)
10. Epic raffle (I didn't win though)

It looks cold out there...
Okay, so we're heading into the fog, around that buoy and then past the buoy you can't see... to Santa Cruz Pier, etc. Got it! I'll just follow Craig.
Duke making sure I represent Surftech with a sticker on Jack Bark's board (that he let me borrow)!

Da beach. Da boards. Bark fest.
The start
Headed home.
Candace running up the finish. Nice job transitioning from SUP to prone Candace! Great competition :).
