Island Water Sports is proud to be part of the 2017 RK Sunshine SUP Series.  This Saturday was the first of the two event series where Sunshine SUP teamed up with the Extreme Kayak Fishing Tournament to bring  a fun-filled beach day, featuring elite, rec and fun races on Pompano Beach!
Sunshine SUP Series
Races began at 8:30 am with a pre-race yoga warm-up from Little Buddhas and a Hawaiian prayer before racers entered the water. The weather held up for the first race, but the storms began to roll in during the elite race. Still the competition was tight and the racers swept through the storm.
Island Water Sports Team Rider Mark Athanacio took home 1st place in the Elite 50+ division.
