Big Winds Jr. Elite Team member, Fiona Wylde wins in Huntington Beach

Fiona Wylde sent us an update of her latest exploits:

“This past weekend I was at the Junior Pro Sup Fiesta in Huntington Beach, Ca. I competed in both the sup surf contest as well as the sprint surf race. Unfortunately I did not so as well as I would have liked in the sup surf contest, getting knocked out in the second round. But that is part of competing; sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t.”

“However, there was some excitement when I participated in the sprint surf race. It was a super short course where we had to punch out of the surf twice as well as ride the waves back in. I managed to do really well, and stayed on my board the entire time. I am stoked to say that I won the race and won it by about twenty seconds.”

“I am so stoked that I was able to be part of an event that was only for kids. The other participants have inspired me to improve my paddling and surfing skills to get to the next level.”

“Now I am heading back to The Gorge, where I will be for two weeks, paddling and getting ready for a race in Lake Tahoe at the end of May!”
