The Surftech Shootout at Steamer Lane and the Surf and Sand Duel presented by SUP magazine went off this weekend in Santa Cruz. Steamer Lane provided big peaks and sunny skies for three days, making for great surf and race conditions.
Candice Appleby had another dominant performance, winning both the Surf and Sand Duel distance race as well as the Shootout at the Lane. This was her fourth consecutive win here in Santa Cruz in as many appearances.
Goofyfooter Dave Boehne showed off his honed backside attack and vast heat experience, choosing the right waves for the win at the Shootout. Slater Trout won the men’s distance race at the Surf and Sand Duel.
Chuck Glynn, who took second in the Duel and fourth in the Shootout, took the overall men’s victory for the weekend.
