[PICS] Ta-Hoe Nalu SnowFest Arctic Paddle (cold, cold…)

Check out the action from the 2012 Ta-Hoe Nalu SnowFest Arctic Paddle, held Sunday 11th March at Kings Beach, Lake Tahoe.

While Connor Baxter and his Hawaiian buddies were lapping up the sun @ the Punta Sayulita Classic down Mexico way… on the same day a bunch the Northern Californian paddlers were braving some brutal conditions in the name of SUP racing.

The air temp was a crisp 28 °F (-2 °C), water temp was 40 °F (4 °C), there were gale force winds, waves (it’s a lake remember…) and even SNOW.

So the race definitely lived up to its name.

At the end of the race, the top three survivors were:

1st: Ronnie Ayres
2nd: Marcus Tingle
3rd: Elijah Delauney

Check out some of the action below…

Also take a look at the official Ta-Hoe Nalu website to see what else is happening on the Lake this year.
