Aotearoa Aito 2015 – Tupu, Marcel & Koha on top

Three Strongarm Team Riders booked their places for Te Aito 2015 in July.  Tupuria in the Open Men’s division, Marcel and Koha in the Junior Men’s & Women’s division respectively.

On a blustery day at Kohimarama Beach, conditions tested all the competitors out on the water, contending with side winds and chop, a brutal upwing leg and a tricky downwind run.

The Junior Men’s division was hotly contested with the top 4 finishers all Strongarm Team Riders: Marcel, Ash, Josh and Maori.

All three will be heading to Tahiti in July to compete in one of the world premier Va’a races, and pitting their skills against the worlds best.
