Paddle Splash
« on: July 07, 2019, 09:38:19 AM »
I am helping put on a event in Northern California. This event helps out with the kids team I run. The event is held at Lake Natoma in Folsom California. Some of you might know about Lake Natoma but for every one else who does not know about this body of water it is one of the best flake water lakes in the world. Yes the world. there are 2 other bodies of water in Europe that are faster but that is it. The NCAA has crew champs here. The Event will be at the end of July. the 26-28th. We will have several different races, 2mile, 5mile, 200m sprint, dragon board race, Grom race, and more. https://paddleguru.com/races/PaddleSplash2019

Please go sign up and help support the youth of our sport.

I'm going to try to make it. I'll be in the area that weekend. What are some good places to stay near by? I'll probably have to store my boards inside over night. Not sure if I want to leave them out on my truck racks. Also, can I race my unlimited?

Same here. I started my distance training routine this morning. Did about 7 miles in the ocean and my back is feeling stronger. Going to put in some miles tomorrow too.

Start practicing your turn on your unlimited if that is what you are going to race on. To design the courses so they are spectator friendly. So the 5 mile course has a decent amount of turns. It is not a out and back. I will post the course maps soon.

I know... All those Infinity guys like to go in circles ::) Sprint pivot, sprint pivot, etc... Wait... how many times do I go around the second and fifth buoy?? I've only got ten fingers. Slater has 11.

I want to see those surfski's do a pivot turn ;D

I may bring a couple of 14's just in case. I have lost weight, so I wouldn't be a complete dog on a 14'er.
