2013 Region 3 (Pacific NW) Results and Standings
Randall Barna has a way with numbers, fortunately for all of us in Region 3. You can look at the following Excel spreadsheets and check out who’s been participating in our WPA events. This is a good time to look ahead and put an event or two on your calendar – no matter what your skill level. Clinics. camaraderie, board demos and the event all combine to create great weekend SUP fun.
The Gold Beach Challenge brought light winds and 4 ft surf. Be sure to check out their website for video clips from 2012
Chip Booth of StandUpPaddleBend hosted and sponsored another great event with the Bend Paddleboard Challenge. Local elite rider, Brit Oliphant and Oregon’s Karen Wrenn provided an exciting race start to finish with Karen grabbing the win during the final minutes. We are stoked that KIALOA team riders, Karen Wrenn, Beau Whitehead, and Cyril Burguiere taught free KIALOA stand up paddle clinics at the Bend Paddleboard Challenge on Saturday, June 15th. The clinics took place after the races. Paddlers of all levels of experience could not get enough of their timer with PNW elite athletes. This was an awesome opportunity to pick up tips from three of the Northwest’s fastest, most acclaimed SUP racers. For a full recap of the event and the top women paddlers, check out this on the KIALOA Paddles blog.
