Week 6 of the EuroTour definitely delivered the goods, with San Sebastian turning on a fun, challenging and highly entertaining 12km race around this scenic seaside city that tested the competitors through a mix of flat water, waves and open ocean bumps.
The men’s showdown was once again an ocean battle between Paddle League ratings leader Michael Booth and number two seed Titouan Puyo, while the women’s event saw something of an upset as Sonni Honscheid accepted her first defeat of the season at the hands of Olivia Piana. → READ MORE

We sure had some fun at the Sunova dealer meeting in southern Thailand last month!
Is this the future of SUP racing? Hmm… 🤔
The best part about the paddling isn’t what happens on the water; it’s the smiles and stoke at the finish line that sum up this great community. And that was captured pretty damn perfectly by the crew from Capital SUP at Maryland’s massive Bay Bridge Paddle on the weekend, where over 400 paddlers hit the water for what was, judging from these photos, a big day out.

In brief: Dark horse Eri Tenorio claimed his first career title with victory at Maryland’s massive Bay Bridge Paddle on the weekend. The Brazilian-turned-Florida-local outclassed Paddle Monster coaching guru and ageless robot Larry Cain to claim the 3-star Paddle League Regional, while Annapolis local Fielding Pagel, known as something of a local dark horse himself, took third spot on the podium. → READ MORE
