It was an awesome day in Parksville for the team from Surf-SUP. Thanks to the Beach Club resort they had a great setting to host the third race of the Surf-SUP Island Series on Sunday, July 10.
A low tide made time for an awesome pre-race clinic led
by Stuart Robinson from Surf-SUP lending his knowledge on quick turns and how to ride the ripples.
Super warm water, great people and hot competition were some of the highlights of the day. A big shout out to the sponsors of the Island Series McDonalds, Booster
Juice, Scotiabank and Olokai. And extra special thanks to XCEL, Starboard and Starboard team rider Stuart Robinson for making the Isup race possible.
The next race for the Surf-SUP Island Series will be in Ucluelet on Aug. 7. For more details check out www.surf-sup.ca or www.facebook.com/comoxvalleypaddleboarding. July 10 results:
