Congratulations to Anthony Maltese and Jade Howson for there results at the 2015 USA Surfing America Championships down in Encinitas, CA. Anthony finished 3rd overall in the Open Men’s SUP Surfing division while Jade finished 1st overall in the Open Women's Technical Race and 5th in the U18 SUP Surfing division.
This years Santa Monica race was a great event... It was a great turnout with a lot of paddlers showing up to participate in one of the few Surf Races of the year.
All of the races had their own highlights but we'll get straight to the best Part... Riviera's own Shae Foudy won! Shae has been ranked in the top 10-15 of womens SUP Racing for a little while now... Number 1 in our book... and proved to everyone that she will be a force to be reckoned with in the next few years. She finished 3rd in the 5 mile race behind Candice and Annabel. In the Surf Race she took the win convincingly with a pretty good lead coming in through the surf.
In the Men's Racing, Brennan Rose, Nick Scheel, Erik Starnes, Rob Rojas, and Ryan Helm held it down for Team Riviera with Ryan Helm finishing 3rd overall behind Vinicus Martin and Mo Freitas.
