Proper Suncare, is proper Skincare, and to take proper care of your skin, you have to take the enitre process seriously. When we Started Vertra Elemental Resistance in 2004, we vowed to do just that, to make a serious push and bring skincare awareness to the forefront of our market because until now, it has basically been a category that has been mostly taken for granted. Our Athletes that participate in the paddlesports industry are amongst the most prolific candidates to suffer from sunburn, skin damage, photo-aging and unfortunately in many cases, skin cancer. SIMPLY PUT, quality suncare products for people like us are not an accessory, but a necessity!

Ocean Ohana Catalina Challenge 2011 Video
Vertra Sunscreen partnered up with Ocean Ohana for the 2011 Catalina Challenge. The 40 mile relay event from Avalon on Catalina to Dana Point draws some of the best OC1, OC2, SUP and paddleboard athletes. Teams are comprised into 2 and 3 paddlers per team.  Vertra's Danny Ching who dominated this event over the years choose to paddle the relay in a five person team. The team consisting of Danny Ching, Josh Cryton, Cryton's 10 year-old son Garrett and Garrett's two friends who were 10 and 13. "It was pretty special," commented Ching, "it's great to see the excitement in the young kids as they are the future for the sport." Even with less than favorable ocean conditions, the event was still a huge success. Family's gathered on Baby Beach to cheer on the athletes as they crossed the finish line. This event is special to the California paddling community commented Race Director Jeane Barrett, "It was great to have Vertra partnered with this years event as well as seeing Vertra crew supporting the athletes as they finished the race was awesome."
