Chuck and Thomas: Juiced in Jersey!


AUTHOR: Trevor Wessman-Lavelle

Early last month, OM ambassadors Chuck Patterson and Thomas 'Maximus' Shahinian joined 100 fellow paddlers for the 3rd Annual Endless SUP Regional WPA Championships in Belmar, New Jersey. In classic, summer East Coast weather--a balmy, windless 85 degrees that morning--the paddlers were faced with a 1 mile sprint and 6 mile distance race. By the time the races had started the wind had kicked up, making for some grueling, choppy conditions but it wasn't enough to keep Chuck from beating out Thomas and fellow SoCal resident paddler and Riviera Paddlesurf front man Brandon Rambo to place first in the sprints and take 2nd in the distance.

 

The local paddlers showed their gratitude for the Southern California contingent attending this race and it is very obvious that SUP is growing some strong roots on the Jersey Shore. Kudos to the event organizers for their work to create a smooth and organized event, and to Ocean Minded rep Keith Bolen, The Endless SUP Company and all the Jersey locals for showing the boys an incredible, fist-pumping good time, Jersey style!
