Santa Cruz Paddle Festival 2013
Vice-Champion / Kayaksurf IC

Name & Age
Mathew Hoff, 24

Mat, there is one t in there. Get it right.

How I got started
The first time I was introduced to a kayak was on a trip to Spicer Reservoir. We paddled in a
canoe to the back of the lake. My dad’s buddy had a kayak and let me try it out when we got
to camp.

How long have I been kayaking?
From the first time until 2007 I paddled on family and Scout trips. I started sea kayaking
spring of 2008 and that fall started surf kayaking.

What I do for the community
I teach sea kayaking at Monterey Bay Kayaks. It is great seeing paddlers come from nothing to doing trips that I would like to join in on. This year I was invited to be a part of the committee for the Santa Cruz Paddle Festival and will be helping put on the Cowells Classic to help encourage new boaters to get into the surf.

How do I train?
I mainly kayak surf. Sometimes I do some touring. Every now and again I paddle a SUP (when it is flat). My surf ski will be replacing that now to help me paddle on those days that are too flat or too windy. I plan on being a big part of the US West Surf Kayak team for the 2012 Worlds in Australia and will be training hard for it.

My competition results
2012 Ventura 2nd
2012 Santa Cruz 2nd HP and 3rd IC
Davenport 2011 1st KOTW and 2nd IC
Worlds 2011, 9th IC and 19th HP

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my
thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it
just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted
simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

These in turn can surely help you to destroy the pathogens and

Waste Water Treatment: Generally the sole objective of an advanced
waste water treatment is to ensure that the waste water and other industrial effluents are released into the environment whereby they ensure minimum or no harm.
In this case a treatment plant will collect and burn these gases, thus producing harmless
(and not so smelly) carbon dioxide and water.

According to industry insiders, enhanced graphics and gameplay have leveled the playing field between consoles and online
games. PS3 game downloads really are the most convenient, fun and addictive way of playing games.
The second reason is Super Paper Mario and
that is another version with the legendary game Super Mario.
