Ollie Houghton

Over the years we have watched this grommet grow into the amazing athlete he is today. Not only is he
the reigning youth champion, Ollie also gives the open men division a run for their money.
Having placed 2nd in the 12'6 men's technical race at our nationals he qualified and attended the ISA
World StandUp Championships in Mexico competing against men twice his age.

Favourite Surf Board: 7'1"x24" Pro
Favourite Race Board: 12'6"x24" Allstar

My favourite place to paddle is my hometown at Takapuna because it's a beautiful coast to explore and
it's always calm and flat - perfect for paddling.

Accomplishments so far:
Placed 17th in the Elite Men division and 2nd Overall in the teams relay representing New Zealand at 
the 2015 ISA World StandUp Paddle Championships
2nd in the Technical Race - 2015 NZ SUP Champs
3rd in the Distance Race - 2015 NZ SUP Champs
1st in all Youth divisions - 2015 NZ SUP Champs
