Surftech Bark Commander Sweeps Molokai2Oahu Stock Paddleboard Division

Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) August 01, 2014

Surftech athletes Jack Bark and Carter Graves won the prestigious Molokai 2 Oahu paddleboard World Championships this past weekend in Hawaii in commanding fashion shattering world records. Bark, Graves and 3rd place finisher Zeb Walsh were all on stock Surftech Bark Commanders. The event was the 18th running of the race and athletes this year were treated to 6-10 foot seas and a prevailing easterly wind making the course extremely challenging as well as very fast.

The win was the second world championship for Bark who was battling teammate Walsh throughout the grueling race. In the end, Bark shattered the existing world record by over 20 minutes with a time of 5:12, a record that had stood for over 10 years. The pack was extremely tight for the first 24 miles of the race and then began to spread as the group neared Oahu.

For Graves the victory was exceptionally sweet since this was her very first crossing of the Ka’iwi channel. The 22-year-old lifeguard from Coronado, California who was overwhelmed by emotion as she crossed the finish line in 6:14, was showered in champagne by teammates Bark and Walsh on the beach. This is Graves first world championship.

With so many records being broken, equipment was the talk of the day especially with the large number of Surftech Bark Paddleboards on the water and the overwhelming performance of all the athletes who were racing them. Both winners as well as over 50% of the field were competing on the new Surftech Bark Commander, the first time the sport has seen a single brand and design dominate the sport. The boards were designed by Joe Bark and are production boards that are available to all athletes at their local board sports shops.

The collaboration between Bark and Surftech began years ago bringing together innovative designs and state of the art construction technology to create superior Paddleboards and Stand Up Paddleboards. The 2015 Bark Surftech line includes high performance race, downwind, touring, paddleboards and many other new boards which will be presented to the public at the Outdoor Retailer trade show August 6-9 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

About Surftech
Founded in 1989, Surftech is the industry leader in manufacturing surfboards, stand up paddleboards and paddleboards. Surftech introduced the first composite technology surfboard to the surf industry 25 years ago. Surftech partnered with the best shapers in the world to bring this innovative new composite construction to market. Nearly 20 years later, at a time when very few people outside of Hawaii had ever seen or heard of stand up paddling, Surftech again broke new ground by introducing the very first production stand up paddleboard to the market, a move that many say launched the SUP industry.

Today, in partnership with many of the world’s leading board designers, Surftech offers a wide variety of high performance surf, stand up and paddleboards to customers worldwide.
