Fun Times In Canada, aka Results From The 6th Annual Easy Rider SUP Cup (UPDATED RESULTS)

Easy Rider SUP CupEarly results are in from the 6th Annual Easy Rider SUP Cup in Edmonton, Canada, which saw a 15km down-river race and an indoor SUP surfing contest. Quite possibly the only SUP contest held in a mall…

Team Quickblade cleaned up, with the Mad Scientist himself, Jim Terrell, taking out the men’s race, while Italian QB team rider Silvia Mecucci took out the women’s.

Runner-up in the men’s was Olympic Gold Medalist Larry Cain, which made for a fitting 1-2 given the history Jim and Larry share in the world of sprint canoeing.

Sounds like it was a fun weekend. We’ll have full results (UPDATE: full results below) and pics shortly, but in the meantime here’s how Jim summed up the event:

This weekend was simply AWESOME!!

All the people were great fun and Warren put on a 10 of a show. Good clinic Friday – two sold out sessions with 10 paddlers and four hours each, back to back. Unreal down river race on the beautiful Saskatchewan – 15 kms with some shallow river current challenges. I was the first overall male and Silvia first overall female, Larry was 2nd. Board shuttle and bus shuttle provided! Nice BBQ following the race, then an evening party screening the H2o Indo and Driftwood movies! Both awesome!

The highlight though was this morning’s SUP surf in the wave pool. We had it all to ourselves. There was a pro heat, which was won by Kalama (doing 360’s and all!). Diane Wenzel won the open women and, somehow (shockingly), I won the open men’s. Must have been the predictability of where the peak is haha.

Super fun time, I want to come back next year for sure!
