Sarasota SUP Championships at Siesta Key Beach: Race Recap

This is the third time I have competed in this race and the last two times were super wavy and windy! But not this time! It was calm with just a few little bumps. However, no wind during the Florida Summer time means super hot, so hot!

I was so happy to have my parents, my aunt and uncle and some of my best friends come out and support me! I couldn’t have done it without them. My dad helped me with my board every lap and my mom gave me water while I ran on the beach! My friends and family I could hear cheering, it was such a great atmosphere.

Also, my HovieSUP team was there! It’s always so much fun when we get together at these events. There was good food, live music, lots of vendors, and so many awesome paddle boarders and one was Danny Ching!

I ended up getting first in the 10K Women’s 12″6′ Elite Race and first overall. The course is a tough one so I was so nervous at the start! 7 buoy turns each lap, and there were 4 laps. After each lap, you had to run in and jump off your board then run on the beach, then jump back on your board AND do it again and again and again!!

My team did awesome as well!
