Three Under 19 paddlers are fighting it out for a $500.00 scholarship to the USA Surfski Championships in August 2012 and after 6 races of the Southern California Winter Race Series the competition is really heating up with 17 year old Michael Lowe just passing early leader Garen Doyle.  Both Michael and Garen are working hard to hold off Sean Barlow who also has a couple of wins under his belt.  

USA Surfski Championships is offering a $500 Scholarship to the top junior SOCAL surfski paddler from this year’s SOCAL Winter Race Series. Junior (U19) paddlers earn 100 points for a win in the Long Course and or 50 points for a win in the short course. At the end of the 9 race series the top points winner will be named as the Scholarship  winner.

The first race of the series in November 2011 had great surf conditions at the start of the La Jolla Shores Race. 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 saw awesome performances by all SDCKT paddlers at every age group. Please extend a big THANK YOU to EPIC KAYAKS and to Valhalla ttp://www.valhallasurfskis.comf or their support of the SOCAL Winter Race Series Junior Races.  For full results: for just the junior points go to or email:
