SUP ATX Racing’s Lincoln Dews and Jayden Jensen will be racing and hosting clinics at Paddle for Humanity in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 1st.
Paddle for Humanity is proud to announce that SUP ATX Racing’s Australian team riders Lincoln Dews and Jayden Jensen will be coming to Deerfield Beach. Veteran Aussie Kelly Margetts took the field in 2012 with a spectacular finish in southern Florida, but in the wake of his retirement it will be up to the next generation of paddlers to secure the top spot.
Dews is no stranger to international competition, taking the gold medal at the International Surfing Association games on the traditional paddleboard and finishing top ten at the Rainbow Sandal’s Battle of the Paddle in 2012. “I’m super excited to be coming to Florida for Paddle for Humanity,” said Dews. Adding “I’m really stoked to be representing SUP ATX Racing and the Lahui Kai team.” Both paddlers will be racing on the SUP ATX Racing Manta race boards, powered by Lahui Kai and designed by World Champion Paddler Mick Di Betta.
