Pics and info from last year’s Santa Barbara Cold Current RACE

We’d like to welcome back to Santa Barbara last year’s overall SUP Cold Current winner, Thomas Gallagher (DC)…UCSB alumni…stoked dude full of aloha…

Last year, Thomas Gallagher (1st place men’s unlimited…1st place overall) just smoked down the coast averaging 6.7 mph…getting a max speed of 9.7 mph…sustained for 30 seconds… I asked him what he was listening to…he grinned, and said “Limp Bizkit”…;-)
