Willamette SUP Cup 2014

Great race as usual put on by Bob & the crew at Gorge Performance.  4" of rain leading up to the race made the river flow pretty stiff.  We were able to go about 8-9mph down stream, and 3-4mph up.  Many folks took swims as the strange whirlpools and boils grabbed their boards. Jarkko & Matt from Team Gorge Performance took the top 2 spots with me in 3rd.  It was a tough 6.7 miles!
