Two 18-year-olds — Matt Becker and Jack Bark — won their respective divisions in the third annual Santa Cruz Down Wind Ryder Cup, a paddleboard race from Davenport to Cowell Beach in Santa Cruz, over the weekend.

Becker was victorious in the stand-up paddleboard division, finishing the 14.5-mile trek in 2 hours, 15 seconds on a 14-foot board. The event, which had prime conditions including 16- to 20-knot winds, saw 70 elite and novice paddlers from Hawaii and California come out.

“This was the most amazing race ever,” Bark was quoted saying in a press release. “I got the best bumps of my life out there and had a blast. I’m so stoked. I can’t wait for next year.

Bark won the prone division on a 12-footer in 2:09:49.

The contest was organized by the Santa Cruz-based Ghost Ryders Waterman Club and presented by the Quiksilver Waterman Collection.
