The 2019 Sea Otter Classic marked our second anniversary as a rag tag media crew trying to swim up a giant pink stream. It took us a few days to wrap up post-otter meetings, and a very short ride in Santa Cruz (hey even we have to ride once in a while!) but we’ve made it back and are now sifting through the memory cards of photos and video clips to share with you.
The show was huge this year, with even more vendors and brands. It didn’t seem like spectator attendance was as high based on our “crowd navigating annoyance” scale, but the larger footprint of the expo area could have dispersed the crowds more effectively. Thus making our need to stiff-arm aimless wanderers on our hurried way to meetings lower than previous years. Then again, the high prices of camping, parking and tickets and unchanged race courses could have worn out their welcome too…OK before we get too off topic, yes, we had fun! We love seeing our tribe dusting off the cobwebs and awakening for the new season, and what a season it looks to be!
We’ll be dropping lots more stuff in the coming weeks but here are a few quick peaks for now. And, don’t forget to check out our Patreon page as we’ll be posting lots of behind the scenes content and exclusive videos/photos along with tons of product giveaways from brands we’ve visited.
