Sobe Surf hosted world champion stand up paddler Candice Appleby and Carolina Cup champion Anthony Vela at a very special SUP racing clinic in Cocoa Beach on January 13. Also that weekend was the annual Surf Expo trade show, and the east coast launch party for Kona Brewery’s Koko Brown line, held at the SoBe Surf resort. It was a great time.
