Tecolote 5000 Race

This year’s Tecolote 5000 Race was hosted by the San Diego Canoe and Kayak Team, part of the Junior Lifeguard Program…

They really have a stellar facility on Mission Bay in San Diego focusing on Olympic development in the sport of canoe and kayak…
pretty kewl to see lots of young kids out paddling competitively…

A cold, windy, and blustery day greeted the paddlers…here’s a race gallery

Here’s our shop manager, John Becker, on the way to victory…

John led the whole race…here is EJ (2nd) leading a Hobie rider, followed by our team riders Rich Schroeder and Bryan Fernandez…

Rich Schroeder held off a fleet of paddlers on Ron House race boards using a new
prototype…

Eva Hollmann (the BoardLady) helped us out with some awesome finish work…

She referred to this project as her “last stand”…

As we’ve told you in a previous posting…Eva is retiring…and we are hosting a party for her at our shop next Saturday from Noon until 6 PM…
