This past weekend the Ventura SUP Surf Challenge at C Street in Ventura, Calif. put some of the sport’s best on a quality wave, allowing them to do their thing with an audience. San Clemente’s Colin McPhillips took home his second win in as many years at Ventura.
According to SUP Mag’s Joe Carberry the level of talented young paddlers is at an all-time high. “The level of surfing was high all around the whole weekend. Dana Point’s Dave Boehne was in good form throughout the competition, showing off his precision surfing and a dialed-in style that is among the funnest to watch in the sport today. And the airs. Huntington Beach’s Daniel Hughes found little ramps the whole event as did Salyulita, Mexico’s Fernando Stalla. Once the kids start consistently landing those airs, the sport’s possibilities are limitless, simply because of the pure speed these paddlers can generate going down the line.”
