High Performance Marks Day 3 of HB Pro

The world’s best standup paddle surfers slashed their way through multiple rounds of competition today at the Standup World Tour‘s Huntington Beach Pro in fun, rippable, chest-high conditions.

One thing that is for sure: the level of performance in standup surfing is on the rise. SUP magazine staffers have spent the last two days covering the action—and sneaking out for free surfs—and both the men and women are reaching incredible levels of consistency and radness. Standouts include Sean Poynter, Leco Salazar, Candice Appleby and Nicole Pacelli.
