Yea the chance to shot Robby Naish at Pistol the last 2 years has been epic. Dana Miller came down the first year to tell me Robby was going out on his sail during the 2010 Wave Bash. That was great because I knew people were swarming and KP was filming, something was going on. Hope he makes it back this year. Here is some footage of Robby Naish SUPing during last years first Stand Up Paddle contest in Gold Beach. Charlie say's Robby's schedule is tight so enjoy this rare footage of Rubby with out a sail at Pistol. On another note I got a call from Lee Murphy in Gig Harbor and he is stocked to come down to the trials. Idea of the year was to get the world tour guys to judge it and give input on the judges cards. Yo how great an idea is that. For fifty bucks you get the chance to win some money, input from the stand up world tour pros and a chance to SUP against them. I am looking for 24 in the trials and the top eight to move on. Eight main event SUPers and the Maui crew in the wave bash. Stay tuned for more and enjoy Robby in the fast lane. Can you say waterman!
Zane Schweitzer will join 2XWorld Champion Kai Lenny, and Bernd Roediger this year at the Stand Up Show Down and Race up the Rogue River this June the 10th through the 17th. I am adding $3,000 to the purse. $750 of that will be paid out to the finalist in the trials. At Sunset Pro and the Surftech Shootout I talked with a few of the west coast guys and hope to recruit some of top talent to give those guys a run at my money.
Last year the Wave Bash with the SUP event was epic. With the race it's got to be over the top this year. I'm thinking this pretty much makes The Stand Up Showdown at the Beachcomber the premier Stand Up Paddle Event on the mainland until the World Tour hits California. A chance for the real watermen to step forward with a sup race, surf contest and the AWT wave sailing event. I think this may be the only event with all three disciplines. The Inn of Beachcomber will be having demos of our Starboard and Naish SUP's so everyone can get into the action. For all the info contact Ted at www.InnoftheBeachcomber.com
