... from West Hansen tips on training and racing:
If it's no longer fun, then quit. I've seen racers get really personal and mean towards each other
when this is supposed to be what we do for fun and excitement.

Carter Johnson about his 2007 Everglades Challenge race:
As for the Surfski, I suspect the exposure factor over 300 miles is greater than any speed gains.
I am sure someday soon a strong sea kayaker will prevail over the course.
But the Surfski is what defines my love for paddle sports and the ocean so it will always be where you find me.
