JD MOTES WINS
THE DON'S FRIENDSSUP RACE STAUGUSTINE BEACH (USA)

Dear friends. Hope all is well with you and yours... Just wanted to let you know that I paddle the 14' carbon Marlin to a 1st Place finish at the Don's Friends SUP Race held this past Saturday in St Augustine Beach. The board was perfect for the conditions: 15 mph side-shore north wind with a rolling 2' to 3' swell and semi-choppy. The stability of that board is unmatched! While faster paddlers were falling in the water all over the place, I never fell on course once (which was a "Battle of the Paddle" style course). Just thought you might like the positive input... Great job, guys.
Here are some pics from the race... JD
