COMPETITION HEATS UP AFTER 6 RACES IN THE VALHALLA JUNIOR WINTER RACE SERIES

A Valhalla Surfski is up for grabs and after 6 races of the Southern California Winter Race Series the competition is really heating up with San Diego Canoe Kayak Team member Leilani Borm forging ahead with 280 total points. Leilani has had some great performances with Short Course age group wins at the Santa Barbara, HanoHano and the NAC races where she also had some top ten finishes overall.  




On Leilani’s tail with 245 points is her twin sister Danielle Borm. Also in the running is Carly DaCosta who is in 3rd with only 4 races, Sydney Bohlman in 4th and Sammy Lee in 5th. Sammy has only completed 3 races and this means she could move up the rankings quickly, especially with another performance like she raced at the HanoHano race in San Diego.






The first race of the series in November 2011 had great surf conditions at the start of the La Jolla Shores Race, but all the kids made it out through the breakers. The following week it was up the coast to Oceanside and despite the cold offshore breeze a large field of 19 and under paddlers headed out through the harbor and back. The Santa Barbara, Tecolote, Hano Hano, and Newport Races took place in outstanding California sunshine… This year’s 
Ocean races has seen awesome performances by all young paddlers at every age group. Please extend a big
