HUNTINGTON BEACH, California - The SUP Fiesta Jr. Pro is an event that kids in standup paddling look forward to attending each and every year. The event, put on by elite athletes Candice Appleby and Anthony Vela, is a one of a kind event showcasing the talent of kids from across the globe.
The 3rd Annual Performance Paddling Junior Pro & Youth SUP Fiesta, an annual all kids stand up surf and race competition at Bolsa Chica State Beach took place on Sunday May 3, 2015 and it was definitely an event to remember. Kids from across the United States and some even flying in from Brazil all gathered this year to compete once again.
The event also brings in top brands in the SUP industry as well as some of the top pros like Zane Schweitzer to coach the kids and help out with water safety. "It's just so cool to see all the talent here," said Zane. There must be over 50 kids from all over the world here just killing it in the racing and surfing side, so it's super cool to see the keiki giving it their all just out there with their friends having a good time."
