Helga at our 2012 Demo

This Sunday June 9th Ocean Extreme Sports will be hosting a Free SUP Demo with Riviera Paddlesurf on the inside of Matanzas Inlet just north of the bridge. Parking is available in the lot or on the side of the road. The demo is from 9am – 12pm.

Helga Goebel of Riviera Paddlesurf will be on hand with a variety of boards for you to try including race boards, touring boards and even surfboards.

Helga is one of the fastest women on the east coast. She’s been dominating the female race scene in the southeast for several years. She’s an accomplished paddler from Fort Lauderdale with an impressive racing history. Have a look!
