Cinco de Mayo Longboard Pro 2015
This year's Cinco de Mayo event was a blast! With the first open water SUP race and SUP surf contest in Texas.
The conditions were perfect the day of the race. Thirty competitors showed up for the 5K along with Team Ocean Tribe.
As Linda would say it with a hint of sarcasm "the BIG Shocker", Joe Cerdas (Team Captain) won 1st place in the SUP Race and in the SUP Surf event.
This was David's "El Capi" Cerdas very first SUP race. He came in fifth, shocking more than one of the experienced paddlers on race day. He says it was a good learning experience and he will be definitely doing it again.
In the women's division, Team Rider Ellie Claire Cherryhomes took first place as well. As everyone was expecting she had a great performance. And always with a smile on her face as she enjoyed every minute of it.
Our other two fellow racers representing Ocean Tribe, Travis Dhonau and Christen Miller also showing what being part of the tribe is about. We are still waiting for the results to be posted but one thing is for sure, they had a great time and hopefully they will be coming with us to other races!
It was great to see familiar faces and to hang out with new and old friends, as we are coming out of hibernation and getting back in to the water for a full season of racing!
See you guys on the water!
