THE ELITE PACK
This year the SUP downwind elite crowd was a bit smaller because of international travel restrictions in place. At the same time, the open and youth division packed a healthy group of paddlers, which is exciting for the growth of the sport. SIC Global Athlete Jade Howson took second place in the women's elite division against hometown favorite Fiona Wylde. Fifteen-year-old SIC Youth Development/Global Athlete Bodie Von Allmen stepped up against the elite men and landed an astounding 5th place among the race veterans.
“The vibe was powerful this year at GPC. You could tell everyone was so excited to be back racing again.”
