Huge Success for Team 425Pro at the PPG!

Team 425pro was on fire at this years Pacific Paddle Games. A large team of 425pro paddlers headed to the games from Tahiti and recorded some great results. It seemed that everywhere you looked there was a 425pro athlete charging in the waves, whether on prone, in the open or in the pro distance race there was always a 425pro paddler in the top 10.  In total the Tahitian brand secured four 1st place finishes, nine 2nd place, four 3rd place and two 4th place. Two weeks TotalSUP speaks to 425pro chief Jerry Mihimana about the team’s results.

“We couldn’t have been more proud of the athletes performance” stated Jerry “I was stoked to see that 425pro was the most represented brand. We featured on most of the podiums during the awards. Too bad they didn’t announce the awards for brands”, he went on to add “I’m just so grateful to see the huge progress we have achieved in such short time and all thanks to our 425pro family getting bigger and bigger, plus the amazing connection with each that we all have.”

The outcome of the PPG was considered a big success for 425pro with Jerry adding ” I can’t believe we did so good and that’s really amazing because we all work hard and we do it with passion and love. We are ADDICTED 2 SUP don’t forget that :D” adding “I would like to send huge thanks Air Tahiti Nui without who all this wouldn’t even happen.”

When asked if a return was on the cards for Team 425pro Jerry told TotalSUP “For sure we will!!! It’s one of our number one races on the list”.
