GlaGla Countdown: only six weeks til the first big race of Season 2022

The countdown to GlaGla is on! ⚡ Only six weeks til the first big race of season 2022 (one of the biggest races of the year full stop)

More than 400 paddlers have already registered for the annual challenge on freezing cold Lake Annecy meaning we should be on for another 500+ mass start. It’s quite the spectacle as this drone footage highlights.

I definitely recommend you add GlaGla to your bucket list, but if you can’t make it to the French Alps next month then I’ll be there for an oldschool SUP Racer live stream hanging off the side of a small boat with a baguette in my hand — tune in live on 22 January 😎👍

INTERVIEW: ISA President Fernando Aguerre shares his vision for the future of SUP (by focusing on the past)

And on the third day he rose again.

Like a prophet arising from his grave, the evergreen President of the International Surfing Association (ISA), surfboard collector and former footwear tycoon Fernando Aguerre has returned from two years of radio silence to address the paddling community. And prophesise he did.

In this 30-minute interview (“monologue” would be more accurate), Fernando opens up about the ISA’s plan for the future of SUP by spending most of his time dunking on the International Canoe Federation (ICF) who are apparently interested in our sport for all the wrong reasons.   → READ MORE

REPLAY: Talking story with KT on SUP Connect Live

Here’s a full replay of my chat with Kristin Thomas on Supconnect Live yesterday. It was a fun chance to catch up with KT and chat a little about where our sport might be heading (it was also fun to be on the other end of the interview for a change).

Kristin is one of the most knowledgeable paddlers in the world and does these interviews every week — follow along on @supconnect insta.

(I was a bit late — I jump on around the 4 minute 15 second mark)

RECAP: Bruno and Joep go toe to toe on the time trial (11 Cities – Day Three)

In brief: Bruno Hasulyo added another minute and a half to his 10-minute lead after a great arm wrestle with Joep van Bakel during the individual time trial on day three of the SUP11-City Tour. The two front-runners set a cracking pace as light winds made for easy paddling conditions. The duo paddled side-by-side after the break to finish before a sprint to the finish saw Bruno get yet another stage win by less than a board length.

Mild weather and a merciful lack of rain once again greeted paddlers on “hump day” of the 12th Annual 11 Cities, which took the flotilla from the west Frisian “city” of Workum up north to the finish line in Franeker.

Petronella van Malsen was once again too strong for Germany’s Tanja Ecker and local lass Wietske Kuipers to tighten Team Mistral’s grip on the title.

For the top paddlers, day three was split between the 12km time trial followed by a standard 29km group stage to Franeker (the bulk of the paddlers completed the 41km voyage as a standard stage).

Results from stage three (time trial results not included — we’ll post those separately in the morning)

RECAP: Bruno Hasulyo, Petronella van Malsen cement leads on scenic second stage of 11-City Tour

After two stages and almost 100km of rollercoaster weather in the Dutch province of Friesland, Bruno Hasulyo has cemented his lead in the 12th Annual SUP11-City Tour as he vies for a record-equaling fourth title. Bruno paddled side-by-side with his main rival, Joep van Bakel, on a beautiful second stage to protect his 10-minute advantage from day one. The two main contenders crossed the line tied for the stage win after 4 hours, 49 minutes and 45km of flat water paddling. Swiss darkhorse Alain Luck was third once again.

Home-nation hero Petronella van Malsen once again saluted in the women’s division, gaining an extra nine minutes on Germany’s Tanja Ecker to give Team Mistral a near-unbeatable edge of 14 minutes overall. Petronella crossed the line after 5 hours and 25 minutes.   → READ MORE

REPLAY: The “Duck Pond Challenge” live stream

Thanks to everyone who made the inaugural Duck Pond Challenge a great morning on the water here in Oz. Perfect conditions for the 13km flat water journey along Currumbin Creek. Well done to local darkhorse Jackson Cosgrove for smashing out the win after a sprint to the line against Johnny Hagan and Paul Jackson.

And thank you to everyone who tuned in on the live stream. Let’s do it all again soon! Join the Facebook Group if you want to know when Duck Pond #2 will be…
