Euro Tour. Week 7. Belgium… While most Americans know Belgium as that team we’ve gotta beat on Tuesday, the country is actually home to a solid little paddling scene. The city of Namur has hosted the Happy Summer SUP Race the past few years and it’s grown into one of the better races in Europe.
We’ve enjoyed a stellar run of sunshine for the NSP Euro Tour this year, however the Happy Summer SUP Race must have jinxed itself with the choice of name… The weather was fairly miserable in Namur today. Prevailing in the conditions the best was Australia’s young gun Jake Jensen, with the Fanatic team rider adding another trophy to his cabinet. Meanwhile Jake’s Fanatic team mate and training partner Angie Jackson was too strong, beating all of the women and a good portion of the men as well. → READ MORE
It’s week #4 of the Euro Tour and this weekend we’re in the awesome city of Bilbao, Spain for another big race: The Bilbao World SUP Challenge. The action wrapped up just moments ago and it was Zane Schweitzer and Angie Jackson who claiming the overall event titles.

Here’s how it all went down. → READ MORE
Day one of the 2014 NSP Euro Tour started with perfect sunny conditions here on beautiful Mallorca, Spain. With a strong field lining up against a backdrop of sandy beaches, colourful and jagged cliffs, imposing islands and turquoise waters, I knew we were in for a great weekend of racing.
The Port Adriano SUP Race is split in two: Long Distance on Saturday and knockout sprint son Sunday. In this morning’s distance race it was France’s Eric Terrien who took the victory, ahead of a very determined Leonard Nika from Italy. Leo set the pace for most of the 13km around the islands outside the luxury Port Adriano, however Eric was too strong in the final 500 metres. Sitting in the lead group of four the whole race and eventually coming home for a very impressive third was former champion Czech marathon canoer, Branislav Sramek, who out-sprinted Austria’s Peter Bartl to the line. → READ MORE
