This past weekend, Bob, the kids and I headed to Lake Tahoe for the Ta-Hoe Nalu Paddle Festival. We had three objectives for the trip: for Bob to participate in a top rated SUP event without embarrassing himself; talk with industry folk (it’s like a mini-trade show); and have a fun family vacation. I also had a fourth objective…to ride my bike the 72 miles around the lake. We succeeded on all accounts and had one hell of a fun time doing it.
The annual Tenacity Games (formally known as Kite & SUP 4 Cancer) took place July 8-9 in Hood River. The grueling 8-mile downwind race from Viento to Hood River was on Friday and the course race and team relay took place on Saturday. Congrats to Team Gorge with another dominating performance from Cyril (two wins), Matt, Dino, Bob and Maria.
