We had sun and wind for four days - more photos coming to come. Ocean Rodeo/Windydevil dominated the course race. There were 58 riders on the start line, and it was a fantastic race. Around 15-18 knots, clear skies, and smooth water.
1st place - Richard Myerscough, the head honcho of OR - riding a 2009 12m Rise and a Windydevil custom race 5'10.
2nd place - SF hero Stefaans Viljoen, also riding an 09 12m Rise and a Windydevil 5'10.
3rd place - yours truly, riding an 09 8m Rise and a 5'4 Windydevil custom race.
Ocean Rodeo designer Ross Harrington, took 10th place on a 10m Rise and 5'10 Windydevil Custom.
Carl " the man " Davison out of Portland took top honors in the Mako Class, and placed 11th overall. He was riding an 09 12m Rise.
Erin Locossco finished 15th (12m Rise, Windydevil custom) after starting about a minute and half late. I guess learning to ride a foil board before the start was not a great idea.....
Contact Windydevil if you'd like to place an order or get more detail on the boards.
A huge thanks to the organizers for pulling off such a fantastic event - the best I have ever attended anywhere!
