Connor Baxter

2015 SUP AWARDS TOP MALE #3

HOMETOWN: Pukalani, Maui

SPONSORS: Starboard, Dakine, Maui Jim, Rainbow Sandals, Future Fins

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
2014 Stand Up World Series overall champion, 1st-place in the ISA course race, 1st-place in the Euro Cup overall, 3rd-place for the ultimate waterman in New Zealand, 3rd-place in the 2015 ISA Distance

GOALS:
I want to win the World Series overall and hope to take out all the stops. Then of course the Molokai to Oahu World Championships and if the conditions are right maybe even set a record. I had a great time in Europe this year so that would be cool to go back for the euro tour and try to defend that title. I also really want to try to get more kids into the sport because they are the ones we need to get stoked. I would also really like to get out to Jaws more and get more waves out there both surfing and standup paddling.

Music: The Glazzies, “So Strange” + Rose Quartz, “Leaving Now” + The Glazzies, “Spill” + Lovelife, “Nova”
