Some more pics from the Ta-hoe Nalu event last weekend that I didn't include in the last 2 posts...stay tuned for one more Tahoe post in a few days with just scenic images only...
The Finish Line (Quiksilver was the main sponsor)
Elite racers getting ready for their start
The un-Tahoe like weather setting in before the race
The top 5 Elite Men that came in after Danny Ching (l to r: Colin McPhillips, Byron Kurt, Rob Rojas, Jay Wild, and Chuck Patterson). On the far right is Ernie Alvarez of Tahoe SUP, the man behind the entire event. Great job Ernie!
All the Elite racers gathered after their race
The total fishing SUP set-up
Here is the 13lb hollow race board from Riviera and 404 that Danny Ching was racing...scary light...
Chuck Patterson and McIntyre - can you tell which one is from Southern California?
Painted Men - EJ Johnson...and I can't recall the other guy's name although he and I met before. He was working in the Laguna Beach SUP shop when I was there on Easter Sunday and that Mexico quake hit...my first earthquake experience. We had a good laugh over that and he remembered me being there.
OC-1s were included in some races. Danny Ching raced his to a win in the 10 mile long distance race. Rob Rojas won the SUP division with Chuck Patterson in 2nd...Brandi Baksic 1st, Karen Wrenn 2nd in Women's SUP.
