Salida SUP Sessions

Along with CKS, Carve Designs, Surf Salida, RMOC and the River’s Edge Restaurant, we hosted the 4th annual SUP Sessions event this past weekend in Salida. We had a great turnout of Colorado paddlers. In the morning we did a 2.5 mile downriver race. In the afternoon we did a new format to the world of river racing with a dual slalom. In this event we had two racers, each in their own “lane”, racing through a series of gates that tested river running skills. Each racer did one run in each lane and combined time went to your overall results. People seemed to really enjoy the format and for novice racers it was far less intimidating than the SUP Cross format where you are battling 3-4 other paddlers for gates, with frequent swims and paddles flying the whole way. I have no photos right because I was busy timing and running the event, but I will post some as soon as I get them. Here are the full results. -Mike Harvey, Salida, CO
