Jim Grossman currently leads in the standings of the Pacific Paddle Surfing Series, which takes the highest 3 scores out of 5. As the last in the Series, Santa Cruz is going to play a huge part in determining the overall winner. In Wave Ski, Tyler Lausten is pushing the lead and will have to shine at Santa Cruz, where he tends to excel. The SUP category is lead by Dave Boehne and his Southern California contingent. Taking the Santa Cruz Paddle Fest will ensure Johnston’s win in the Series.
