Kai Lenny (Naish) from Maui put together a flawless event campaign here in Huntington Beach to take the win at stop 3 on the 2013 Stand Up World Tour. Each round Kai put together high scoring heat after high scoring heat, with a climax in Round 4 where he posted a heat score total of 18.57, a near perfect score. With a mix of high performance, crisp turns and progressive maneuvers, inclusive of a number of well executed aerials, Kai made his intentions known here in Surf CIty USA, and became one step closer to regaining the World Title that eluded him in 2012. This win extends his current ratings lead as he now is counting 2 firsts and a 5th from the 3 events so far this year.

We arrived at Watergate Bay on Thursday morning, following a week of looking at the web cams and surf reports that went from perfect to 25ft, then back to 6ft wind blown slop.  Thursday was windy but with a 3-4ft swell running, myself, Gareth Grant, Simon Bassett and Holly Bassett got in the water for a warm up session.  Both Gareth and myself were trying new low volume boards, which proved to be challenging in the windy conditions.

The 2011 BSUPA National championships were held at the usual venue of Watergate Bay in Cornwall. This year the forecast was looking good at 2-3 foot on Saturday with light offshore winds and Sunday a increasing swell 3-5 feet with a better period. When we got there Saturday morning we weren't disappointed –the sun was out the the swell had arrived were set for a great weekend of paddle surfing.

50 competitors were divided up into heats of 4 or 5 and each had 15 minutes to cut some shapes on the wave face. A panel of 3 judges would then score each wave ridden the best two wave scores added to get maximum points.
