San Fran Downwinder with Jonas, Tom and the QB Crew

 

Here’s an inspiring little clip that Quickblade posted a couple of weeks ago, featuring adaptive paddlers Jonas Letieri and Tom from San Francisco, who have both overcome the odds to enjoy the world of stand up.

Via QB’s resident filmmaker Chris Aguilar, the clip chronicles the trip to San Fran to score a downwind run. The Mad Scientist himself, Jim Terrell (who designed Jonas’ custom paddle that you see in the clip), is in there along with local lad and future name to watch, Haakon Hoyer-Nielsen.

Watch above and enjoy, and check out the full stand up paddleboarding video archive for more.
