BOGA Takes 1st & 2nd @ Place Siesta Key Classic
One of the most grueling races of the year took place on the USA’s number one voted beach Siesta Key this April, 2013. Racers from all over the state and beyond dueled it out for 13 miles in high ocean swells, windy inland bays. They even maneuvered over hundreds of Stingrays at one point while chasing down the clock in the huge wind swell.
BOGA’s Jeramie Vaine from CA took First place 12.6 (Second overall) minutes ahead of any other racers in the Men’s class. Female athlete and Florida local Cat Uden took a hard fought 2nd overall in the woman’s class in the what she claims as “the hardest race ever done”. Dave Meyler rounded up the wins by taking 1st overall in the short race (On the El Rey Surf Shape, beating all race boards).
Post race, we were greeted with some rare waves at Siesta Key and surfed the end of the day away. Thanks to all our friends and racers for making the Siesta Key Classic one to remember!
