Hopefully by now, you know who Dan Gavere is. If not, be prepared to be impressed. He is fresh off his first win in the Teva Mountain Games, in the Surf Sprint. He also recently came in first place in the Reno River Run beating the second place competitor by only 1 second. Amazing.
He also recently won “King of the Beach” in the Santa Cruz Paddle Festival’s Surftech Dual-Athalon SUP Competition, which combines SUP Racing and SUP Surfing. Dan finished 2nd in both the Race and the Surf competitions, which gave him the honor of being awarded “King of the Beach.”
He also released a great DVD early last year, as well as winning SUP Connect’s SUP Couple of the Year Award a few months back. All in all, its been a fun ride for Dan. There are many other victories and accomplishments I haven’t mentioned.
I would encourage you to take a look the videos below. One is showing Dan River Surfing on the Colorado River, and the other is the trailer to his SUP Instructional DVD.
Dan Gavere gives highlights on SUP surfing standing waves during a 15 year high water event on the Colorado River at spring run off. A group of surfers hit up the amazing surfing waves at the Glenwood Springs water park and Big Sur wave near Grand Junction.
