Hanohano Ocean Challenge Saturday 1/26/19
« on: January 24, 2019, 09:20:16 PM »
The Hanohano was the first mainland paddle event to include SUP in 2006. At one point a couple years ago there were about 400 SUP competitors and over 700 paddlers total. This year looks like epic SoCal weather and the 4.5 mile flat water short course is a lot of fun for novice and pros alike. The venue at Bonita Cove has a sandy beach and it great for demos. It's only $25 to enter and the shirts are always keepers. There's a great raffle too. I'll be there under the KeNalu tent with some display product and will be selling some greatly discounted new ULI Boards (the 10' Ponto and an 11' version). We'll have ULI branded leashes by Stay Covered for $15, and some great deals on 3 pc paddles, travel bags and pumps.

Best race of the year. I'll be there.
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I don't use.

Wow the Hanohano did not disappoint.  There were 398 paddlers on short course and it was quite a scene. Thank you to Tall Dude for loaning me an unlimited board to race - it was pretty fun but I just checked my times from 2015 & 16 and I was 30 to 45 seconds faster on a SUP Surfboard (inflatable). Danny Ching won the overall SUP but Rob Rojas put on a great performance on his Brawner unlimited taking 4th overall SUP. I love how he doesn't need any part of the draft train.
