“12 Towers” Post-Race Interview: Jamie Mitchell

Check out what Jamie Mitchell has to say about downwinders, high performance training and the one race he’s most looking forward to in 2012.

The Gold Coaster came in a close 2nd behind Travis Grant in Saturday’s epic “12 Towers” Ocean SUP Race and had a quick chat with us after the finish.

Also keep an eye out for SUPracer‘s coverage of the ISA World Stand Up Paddle Championship in Peru this month, where JM will be flying the flag for Team Australia.

The 10x World Champ paddles for Quiksilver, Surftech, Quickblade, Future Fins, Kaenon, Watermans and a few more I’ve probably forgotten (…he’s got a lot of sponsors, basically).

Jamie was riding his new signature Surftech 12’6″ Elite stand up paddle race board in Saturday’s downwinder. Get more details about the board on Surftech’s official site (or go check it out in your local SUP store!).
