Great fun today for the first 'Screaming SUPs' downwinder.
The first paddle of the season from this group saw five intrepid paddlers push on from Howrah to Kingston Beach in shifting conditions.
The muscles were woken up, some great runners had along with some unexpected dips in the slowly warming Derwent.
This group is open to all and provides a forum for people to gather a squad for a DW this summer.
Think of it as Tinder for Downwinders.
Simply post that your keen for a DW and see what happens.

It was great to catch up with Luke from the north west coast SUP's and Dany from Vic, wouldn't be surprised if we see Dany back down here to compete in the "World Coldwater SUP Titles" that are on here next winter

Great conditions, greater paddlers at the Carlton Park Surf Life Saving Club carnival SUP division. A technical course with a turning buoy in the whitewash made for an interesting race. Finishers in order were Mat Golding, Jake Steele, Ben Stockwin, Peter Genders, Mick Hawes and Tony Leitch.
Ben Stockwin won the adjustable Naish paddle kindly donated by Naish and Jay Sails Wind Kite SUP
Great BOP race and once again great fun!

thanks for the pics Issy

Inland Waterman Challenge.
It was a great day of racing at Montrose Bay in conjunction with the Hobart Outrigger Canoe Club's Regatta.

The format for the day was a 10km marathon, a 200 metre sprint and a Tech Race. The results of the placings in each event determined the overall winners on the day in each age group. So to be eligible to win overall, you had to compete in all 3 events.

The open mens winner was Luke O'Garey whom paddled extremely well in each event, Over 40's winner Matt Golding pushed Luke all the way in each event to also finish second in the open division. The 10km race also saw Pete Genders right the thick of the action and at the conclusion of the race not a huge amount separated first to third.

Overall placings in each division

Open
Luke, Matt and Jake

Over 40's
Matt, John and Grant

Over 50's
John, Dave Smith and James Lyons.

All paddlers would like to thank firstly the Hobart Outrigger Canoe Club and the wider outrigging community in attendance for making the SUP's welcome on the day.

A big thank you to Ben and Stef for donating the Yoga and Massage vouchers for the competitors draw.

A big thankyou to Dale Cumming and Whatsup for obtaining the SUP goodies for the members draw, and also to Dale for taking some amazing photos of the day which have been posted this week.

A Massive thankyou to Andrew Stegman and Canoe and Surf Devonport and North West Trophy House for donating the trophies for the winners. I thought the trophies looked awesome and would recommend anyone looking for trophies and medals to contact Andrew.

It was also awesome to welcome Andrew to the event for his first crack at racing on the SUP.

all in all a successful day, I hope we can all do it again next year and build on the day. Therefore please all feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Now the next thing is for North West SUP Club to organise an event up here on the NW Coast

Hey mate I was reading this post...it says that you caught a wave for 600meters? surely this cannot be correct? You weren't riding a wave without paddling for 600 meters?

These are more runners than individual waves, you get on one and then have enough pace to punch into the one in front and keep on doing this till you finally fall down the back of one so runs of 600m are easily possible. On the Derwent we are riding wind slop, not ocean swells, this day it was a steady 40 knots with gusts to 60 so not much paddling needed
