Bob's Mission Surf
Let's get the San Diego SUP Race Scene Going! Suggestions?
Awesome topic thread. For those that made it to the 15th Annual Hanohano-Huki Ocean Challenge this past Saturday can see that San Diego can host really great racing opportunities. (Thanks again Dan VanDycke & Hanohano OCC organizers and all their sponsors for a great event.) I think one of the potential hurdles may be permitting in San Diego. It can be tough to get a special events permit during the warmer summer months on Mission Bay. But if enough interest is generated (i.e. revenue for city) the process could get easier. In addition to Bob Long's Wed morning group, I believe there is a regular paddleboard/SUP group that launches from the Bahia on Tuesday nights led by Ryan Levinson. A friend of mine also runs a twice a week interval session for OC1/SUP on Tues/Thurs evenings launching from Mission Bay Sports Center/OEX (Santa Clara Point) at 5:30pm. It is an intense, race-focused, track-style, interval/repeat session that lasts about 60-90mins.Last replied by ChrisTopher Hill on Sunday, 30 January 2011
