SAN CELMENTE, California - On May 25th, 2014 Performance Paddling is proud to introduce the 2014 Junior Pro line-up, for the world’s premier ALL YOUTH standup paddle event.



This unique event features not only talented young “veterans”, but also many enthusiastic sup groms, who for some, will be competing in their very first surfing competition. Many of the young competitors already have names that are easily recognized while others will be new to the sup scene, but this is a chance for unknowns to become well knowns!

Below is a list of the current competitors:


Yuri Daberkow, 17, Brazil

Max Fleming, 15, California

Mo Freitas, 16, Oahu

Felipe Gaspar, 14, Brazil

Noa Hopper, 15, California

Ridge Lenny, 17, Maui

Dax McPhillips, 9, California

Kai McPhillips, 11, California

Riggs Napoleon, 16, Oahu

Bernd Roediger, 17. Maui


Alleanna Clark, 15, California

Lara Claydon, 14, Maui

Izzi Gomez, 14, Florida

Sasha Ka’uhane, 11, Oahu

Mason Schremmer, 13, Oahu

Natalia Smith, 17 Kauai

Vanina Walsh, 17, Oahu

Fiona Wylde, 17, Oregon

Although the $5000 prize purse is only for the Junior Pro SUP Surfing contest, many of the invites will be competing in their Age Group in sup racing as well. There is going to be plenty of action all day long!

Come meet the Junior Pros, and get their autograph, at our event Pre-Party which will be held Friday Night at Daphne’s California Greek restaurant in San Clemente. After the autograph signing, there will be a special concert by our very own Junior Pro Invite & Performance Paddling Competition Team member Izzi Gomez. 20% of food sales will also be donated by Daphne’s, to the Performance Paddling Competition Team.
