Ollie Shilston Wins Penultimate Round Of UK Series

Norfolk Broads Stand Up Paddle board raceOllie Shilston has taken out the Norfolk Broads SUP Race, the penultimate event of the 2014 UK SUP Clubs race series.

Ollie is going to be in action again in a couple of weeks, however this next one will be a little bit further from home. The current UK #1 received a call up for the Ultimate SUP Showdown and will go head to head with a good chunk of the world’s best paddlers in Waikiki on the 17th and 18th. Very cool to see the UK represented in such an elite, invite-only race.   → READ MORE
