We’re here in the South West of France for week 4 of the EuroTour, with the ‘Hossegor Paddle Games’ set to be one of the most competitive competitive races of the European Summer of SUP. It should also be one of the most exciting, with the famous waves of Hossegor offering paddlers a European version of the Pacific Paddle Games.
It’s going to be a cracking weekend of racing, with the likes of Connor Baxter, Michael Booth, Titouan Puyo, Mo Freitas, Arthur Arutkin, Leo Nika, Toby Cracknell, Vinni Martins, Slater Trout, Sonni Honscheid, Candice Appleby, Olivia Piana, Seychelle Hattingh and many more (including dozens of European dark horses) battling it out for points, prize money and glory on the shores of the Atlantic. → READ MORE
Australia’s Michael Booth has proven yet again that he’s the strongest distance race paddler on the planet, overpowering world number one Connor Baxter and Carolina Cup champion Titouan Puyo to claim the 18km event on day 2 here in St. Maxime, France, earning the overall ‘SUP Race Cup’ title and gaining an early advantage on the EuroTour Leaderboard in the process.
With beautiful blue skies and flat, glassy conditions greeting the assembled field of international stars, European dark horses and local contenders this morning (which stood in stark contrast to the cyclonic winds in Saturday’s beach race), this was always going to be Boothy’s type of race.
It was 12 months ago this weekend that the Starboard rider announced himself as the strongest distance racer in the world, and after a few disappointing results early in season 2017 he was clearly keen to reassert his dominance. → READ MORE
We’re here in Sainte Maxime on the iconic French Riviera for the 8th Annual SUP Race Cup, one of the longest-running races on the planet and the third stop of the 2017 EuroTour.
With a beautiful location (St. Maxime is just across the bay from the famous St. Tropez), an absolutely stacked field (check out the names below) and almost a decade of history and prestige, we should be in for a cracking weekend of racing.

And just like that, it’s summer.
With the sun starting to shine and the weather warming up across the Continent, the ‘European Summer of SUP’ officially begins this weekend with France’s classic, long-running SUP Race Cup in St. Maxime lighting up the French Riviera.
While the 2017 Tour has already had two regional stops, the big guns are only just starting to arrive, which means the EuroTour ‘Prime’ level races begin now. And you’ll be able to watch it all from a front row seat with SUP Racer’s signature Facebook Live streams. → READ MORE
In brief: Bruno Hasulyo (Starboard) and Petronella van Malsen (Mistral) have taken out week 2 of the EuroTour in the Belgian city of Namur, saluting at the Happy Summer SUP Race over a small but enthusiastic field.
Bruno took the win ahead of Italian duo Martino Rogai (Team Infinity) and Bruno Capparella (BIC), showing solid form that suggests he’ll be a genuine contender against the superstars in the six-week run of EuroTour ‘Prime’ events that begin next week in St. Maxime, France. → READ MORE
