The 2007 US Surfski Championships were held in unexpectedly calm conditions.  Competition was fierce, with the tidal currents playing a significant role.  Greg Barton (48) won the sprint to the Fenn Hotspot, taking home the $1000 bonus prize, while Lewis Laughlin (37) paddled a great race, overtaking Oscar Chalupsky (44) on the home straight.  (Look at the ages of those paddlers - who all beat a squad of younger world class competitors...)
