Last weekend The Jamie Mitchel Survivor race hosted by Quiksilver Waterman went down in Huntington Beach. There were top paddlers from all over the world. We had the whole team there including Ryan Helm, Shae Foudy, Jade Howson, Cyril Bugierre, Daniel Russel, Talia Decoite, Taylor Rambo, Brandon Rambo, & Mace Camhe.
The conditions were bumpy with an onshore wind and small waves. It was all about getting a good start and making it through the surf cleanly. Shae Foudy had an incredible race taking 1st or second in 4 of the 5 heats beating Candace, Anabel, and the rest of the field. Shae has won the Santa Monica Race twice, and now the Survivor race in a stacked womens field to now be considered one of the top women paddlers in the world.
The racing went well for the rest of the team as well. Jade Howson battled back from getting taken out in the surf. Talia finished 8th after snapping her Paddle against Terene's board.
