I walked into the hotel bar on Saturday night and found Ian Gray nursing a beer, reclining as far back in the high-backed chair as he could without slipping off.

April 2006, Puerto Rico: [Warm water, a 20 knot following wind, six foot waves, a twenty four mile race across open ocean… could this be surf ski paradise? Are we talking Hawaii?  Well, actually no – but the organizers hope that this race, the Culebra Kayak Challenge could grow to become a “Caribbean Molokai” and be included in future race calendars as a World Cup event.

The 1st annual Culebra Kayak Challenge was held April 9, 2006 and this race report was sent in by DeAnne Hemmens who was there with husband and fellow competitor Patrick. 

The spectacular photos are couresy of race organiser Greg Hernandez - look out for a video clip in the near future.]
