UPDATE: Check out the Tahoe Nalu video from Team Quickblade

The Quiksilver Waterman Collection’s $10,000 Ta-Hoe Nalu SUP Festival, presented by Revo, has just wrapped up at Lake Tahoe. Saturday saw the 10 mile Long Distance Race while Sunday was the epic Survivor SUP Race.

On Day 1 it was Brian Stockdale who was the fastest over the distance, taking the overall line honours on his Unlimited board. In the battle for the Elite 14′ class Jamie Mitchell grabbed the win, though the 10x World Champ only just got home, having to run down Chase Kosterlitz in the final few metres to snatch victory (see the sequence below!). Local gun Jay Wild grabbed the final podium spot.

Meanwhile Candice Appleby was quickest in the Women’s Distance Race, finishing ahead of Brandi Baksic and Alison Riddle.

Mitchell made it two from two in Sunday’s Survivor SUP Race, with Jay Wild (2nd) and Chase Kosterlitz (3rd) switching their positions from Saturday. On the women’s side it was two from two for Candice Appleby as well, proving too strong again for Brandi (2nd) and Alison (3rd).

That means Jamie Mitchell and Candice Appleby both went through the weekend undefeated, claiming the titles of Ta-Hoe Nalu Elite Grand Champions (and some nice winners’ cheques).

Sounds like it was an awesome weekend, with a huge number of both local and international paddling talent enjoying the epic surrounds of Lake Tahoe. There were a total of 126 SUPs in the 10 miler, 165 in the 4 miler and an extremely impressive 41 youngsters in the Grom Races.
