In the absence of a live stream, video summary or press release (we expect them to appear in the coming hours), here is all the info that TotalSUP has managed to gather for our readers about the Red Bull Heavy Water event that took place in San Francisco yesterday.
DNF Dave Boehne (due apparently to a broken leash)
Connor Baxter, Stand Up World Series Champion 2016
A win at the Red Bull Heavy Water was what Connor Baxter needed to comfort and increase his lead over the competition to win the world title.
Close to 100 at the beach start, 50-60 at the finish and a lot of people watching around the course
“Good vibe good local support and generally everyone was stoked” according to James Casey
It wasn’t the huge set-up you would usually expect from Red Bull. Red Bull was there with a few Red Bull girls distributing drinks but no big scaffolding in sight or anything like that. There were, however, helicopters and drones and heaps of photographers around the course.
The course was around 13km
