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.

April 28 – September 15, 2012
March 2, 2012 – The Watermans Paddle for Humanity is building on four years of success by expanding to five events in 2012. The award winning series will feature multiple events on both coasts with stops in California, Florida, Washington D.C. and Texas – bringing coastal and inland paddling communities together for a good cause.
The success of the three-stop 2011 series and increasing demand for quality events has bolstered the Paddle for Humanities growth and united the paddling community. What was once a single grass roots event on the sands of Dana Point has grown into a five stop series that has connected paddlers with people in need in all parts of the world. In 2011 the Paddle for Humanity was recognized by the paddling community and awarded the SUP Magazine “Philanthropic Event of the Year” at the first annual SUP awards. The award highlighted the continuing efforts of the series and its founders, its reach in the paddling community and its professionalism in the execution of the events.
“[The Paddle for Humanity] has always been about creating an event that channels the positive energy of the paddling community towards a good cause. The support for the event series from the industry and the paddlers has been amazing,” says founder and race co-director, Pete Stirling. “We are looking forward to continued growth in the coming years.”
In addition to two new stops, the Paddle for Humanity will be rolling out a new multi-race format that feature events and activities for paddlers of all ages and skill levels.
