The a race up the Rogue is sanctioned by World Paddle Association so come on over and be a part of the only SUP surf contest and race in Oregon. Projected start time will be June 10th at 11:00 am. There will be at least $1,500 in prize money for the long race. You can check out the Gold Beach Challenge link for some of the details. I Expect to add $3,000 in prize money with a $50.00 entry fee. $750 to the trials finalist if we can get at least 12 in the event , $1,500 for the Stand Up Show Down SUP surf contest and $1,500 for the race. Yea that's more than $3,000.. Any questions email me at Ted@GoldBeachWeather.com . Kai's dad Martin emailed me after the Sunset Pro and said they are up for the contest. So far Kai, Zane, The Hughes brothers Daniel and Matthew, Bernd Roediger and Karen Wrenn are some of the names confirmed. Charlie Burwell with Naish and Karen Wrenn are talking with Chuck Patterson to see if he can make it. Got a Keg of Kona Brews Koko Brown for the party!!

I have a bunch more heats up on the Stand Up World Tour 2012 Sunset Pro Heats on Demand page so check it out.

Young Ripper Benoit Carpentier Highlights

Ben started the Sunset Pro at the ripe old age of 15 and finished at 16. Check out his highlights through the trials and main event. After a strong finish at the La Torche Pro he now sits 8th in the world. Ben is definitely someone to keep your eyes on as he heads to Tahiti.

Here is a little footage of the guys testing their boards in some huge Sunset. Talk about going for it, check Kai Lenny out and Sean Poynter verifying that Newton's law of gravity is still in effect. Tried to slow it down and focus on the good stuff. I will get more heats up on the Heats on Demand page.

Semi Finals and Finals Waves

I came back to process the video when it was over. I wanted to get it posted and it is a bit of a hassle. Was a great final. I broke down waves of Bonga and Kai. Here they are with the semi finals, Quarters next.

Not sure if I got all the waves of Bonga but pretty sure I got all of Kai's. Would be great to see the scores. Congratulation to the Champion Bonga Perkins. Check of the drop off the lip in slow motion!!!!

Epic Finals Main 2012 Stand Up World Tour Sunset Pro

I over heard Kai telling a friend he was stoked to make the finals. It was a little uneasy for a while. His dad told him to take it up a notch in the finals. He killed it. Not only did he kill it , he jumped on sunset and pulled the throbbing heart out of the monster and ate it. Huge Sunset. Some of the sets were like Waimea Bay. Here is a quick video. It is a one pass encoding so I left the frame rate and bit rate up high. I will redo it and shorten it. 9 minutes long. I want all you guys to have any idea of what it was like. Sorry I am not a glitzy video editor. I Think the video gets it done. Martin Lenny said they expect to stay at the Inn of the Beachcomber during the contest. Talked with a ton of the world tour guys and Robby Naish. I think the June contest is going to be huge.

Stand Up Paddle World Tour 2012 Sunset Pro Heats On Demand

My son graduated from Sisters High School in 2008 and was all state as a offensive tackle. They Had a running back Name Cory McCaffrey that rushed for 8460 yards in three years. It was easy to see when they were in 8th grade they were a special ground. They went to the state finals 2 years in a row. The HD broadcast equipment was purchased to film the boys. It rains in Oregon and so I have shot plenty of games in the rain. The nice thing about shooting here i Hawaii is it's a lot warmer.

Pretty darn epic today even with the squalls that passed over the plan is to put of the heat unedited for now and when i get home to Sisters Oregon put together highlights. The footage will unedited on the heats on demand. Only way I can get them up. I shot the contest from 8:00 am till 3:00 PM. One of the judges came down and had me replay the 1st heat. That means that the 3rd heat will be a little light.
