Going through my pics. Like this one a lot too bad it’s not a wide view. Men’s final technical race the best of the best. #ppg2015

Stoked to take 12th in the technical final yesterday at the @pacificpaddlegames I’m pretty confident that was the most stacked field of racers I have ever gone up against. Racing season is over for me but I’m already looking forward to training for next year. Thanks everyone for all the support, and positive comments throughout the year(s). #ppg2015 #sup #racing #roguesup #playhardpaddleharder #27north #strengthinnumbers #harimari #sandals

Break a leg neck!

The name has changed but the #ppg2015 is still a “battle.” Our team coach and founder @paddlepowertrainer taking a mouthful of Doheny’s sea shells and sand into the face. Mick competed in nearly every event at this years pacific paddle games and battled through each one for team #lahuikai and for #australia – Mick you are a legend. Good on ya mate!

Candice … is there much more to say?

Wow. What a weekend. I’m still processing all of it. I’m am so incredibly grateful and blessed. The 2015 @supthemag Pacific Paddle Games was a world class event and I’m so stoked to be the champion. Huge thank you to the athletes, organizers, volunteers, event sponsors and my team of supporters! I had a blast. Congrats to all who charged the challenging conditions. Big thank you to the @infinity_sup crew @thebrownblurr and the whole Boehne family for your love and support. Thank you so much to ALL of my sponsors for the best equipment on the planet. Ultimately all the glory goes to God who has blessed me with the athletic abilities to glorify Him.
