According to this article by the Victoria Advocate, the Texas Water Safari, dubbed “World’s Toughest Canoe Race”, had its first ever Stand Up Paddlboard entry — Shane Perrin. Although labeled a canoe race, they do allow any human muscle powered propulsion boat. We are not surprised to see a SUP in the race but what is interesting to us is that Shane had sent us several messages asking about a paddle that Werner was sending him through our shipping facility. To be honest, we were not aware of what Shane was up to, we just knew that he was very concerned about his paddle arriving on time and lucky it did, the race was the very next day! Shane had sent us several Twitter messages asking about it and now it all makes sense. Shane apparently came in form St. Louis to participate in the race, read the full story here. Roland @ACK
