Aloha Paddling Ohana!!!

Thank you once again for attending, participating and/or donating to an event that is very near and dear to our hearts.
We are so grateful for this community!

We are happy to report that together we raised $4004.00. We will support the VA Aquarium Stranding Team with a check for $500 and the balance of $3500 will go directly to the Vickers family.

I’d like to recognize the following people/businesses for their outstanding generosity:
Jimmy Reeve and Joe Shetler, owners of Baja Sandbridge for allowing us to use their venue again this year.
Pat and Amy Barton of for donating the money to purchase our trophies carved by Eric Coulson.
The Bold Mariner Brewing Company for the free-flowing libations.
Slicko N Deb Hall for their help with timing and course safety.
Nick Naylor for donating the Rock-It Surf Board.
Steve Dullack for donating the Hippostick paddle.
Bob Pudney, Robbie Mitchell and Amy Barton for heading up the kids events.
John Wright and Jeanie Drescher for photography.
Crosswind Paddle Company, Chris Romine, Mark Wiseman, Rach Victoria, Sarah Debolt, Jamie Curran, Jeanie Drescher, Nick Gallegos, Ray Barnett,Slicko N Deb Hall, and Keri Douglas for all the awesome raffle schwag!
