Thanks to everyone for coming out for the race yesterday.  WOW!! What a turnout and incredible vibe!  The wind really turned on for us 20+ mph.  It seems like the whole pack just flew down the course.  I personally had great time seeing everybody and hanging with the folks who camped out last night.  It looks like we raised over $4,000.00 for the Leo Carrillo Junior Lifeguard program which provides for the junior guards to have environmental day at the local chumash village and allows kids who may not be able to afford the program to be junior guards and get amped about the ocean like we all are. So thanks again.  I am going to make a second run of shirts, so anyone who did not get a shirt please email me by the end of the week.  Finally, the results should be up by tonight.

Hello everyone, Scott Hubbell and Michelobe Ultra would like to invite all who participated in the Malibu Downwinder to Hermosa Beach this Monday the 25th with a free entry for the first event of the Michelobe Ultra racing series.  Click on the link below for more information.
