WPA World Paddle Championship overall


'2013 Stand Up Paddle World Championships'    Sean Douglas, Hobie 2013
Fernando Stalla and Kristin Thomas have been crowned 2013 Stand Up Paddle World Champions. Fernando now holds back to back World Championship Titles also winning in 2012. Participants competed in both Elite and Open divisions on Saturday, September 21st at Lake Las Vegas in Nevada. Competitors paddled surrounded by majestic scenery at Lake Las Vegas with the air temperatures in the high 90's and very challenging wind conditions just in time for the start of the Pro Slalom Race.

Fernando Stalla paddled on a 14' custom Rogue followed by Leou On Eric who finished second and third place was our very own Byron Kurt. Kristin Thomas paddles on a 12'6' SUPLove and was followed by Betsy Risner who finished second and third place was claimed by Ruth Vesler.

Thomas Maximus landed a first place overall finish in the Pro Long Course paddling on a custom Riviera unlimited and also competed strong in the Pro SUP Slalom Race. Scott Diederich was the winner of the Open Race paddling on a 14'. Robin Jacobsen was the first female across the line paddling an open stock board.

$15,000 total prize money was handed out competitors this year. We wish to thank all of our Sponsors and Vendors for their support. The Westin Resort Lake Las Vegas rolled out the red carpet to welcome all of us for the weekend. The Hennessey's crew once again went above and beyond. Our demo day was a great success thanks to Joe Bark and Bark Paddleboards, BOGA Boards and Hobie.

A very special Thank you to Stephan Lambert and The 2013 Bora Bora Liquid Festival for donating a grand raffle prize package worth $5,600 to Bora Bora in December. Congratulations to Ruth Vesler who won this awesome trip.

The World Championships were capped off by a fabulous Street Party and Awards banquet hosted by Hennessey's in the heart of Old Las Vegas on Fremont Street. An absolute fun filled weekend in Vegas was had by all.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the location for the 2014 World Paddle Association Championships.
