Paul Jackson and Mo Frietas battle for long distance SUP title

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 August, 2014 - Paul Jackson dominated the Long Distance race and made the most of the wind swell bumps into the beach on the downwind sections to take the win on Day 2 of the Shonan Chigasaki Pro.

Firing out of the blocks on the start line, Paul hit the first buoy out in front and powered through the downwind section of the first lap. Losing the lead, briefly on the second lap to Mo Frietas, Paul showed his experience to take the outside line and a better run in to  the shore break buoy and was able to regain his lead.

Having opened up about a 50m gap between him and the chasing pack of Mo and Beau, Paul put his head down through the final third of the course and was able to hold his lead and finish comfortably ahead. 

A great performance from the Australian using his experience of downwind paddling to his advantage and prove just how much of a force he is. Laying down the gauntlet for the rest of the international fleet as we approach the business end of the Sup season.
