11 Cities: Stage 3 highlights

Video not loading? Watch directly on Facebook

Bruno Hasulyo has tightened his grip on a third SUP 11 City Tour title after once again breaking the field on the canals of Friesland. Bruno won today’s third stage by almost 10 minutes to extend his lead over the chase pack. The difference now stands at nearly half an hour–the rest of the boys are fighting for second place.

Conditions were near perfect on Friday for the “split-stage” — the day started with a 12km time trial (staggered starts, no drafting) and finished with a 30km group stage.

Lena Ribeiro from Brazil finally turned the arm-wrestle with Petronella van Malsen to her favour by gaining a minute in the TT, but the Mistral duo once again crossed the line together. It’ll all come down to Sunday’s 27km time trial.

Before then, we’ve got a 42km stage from Franeker to Dokkum on Saturday morning. Follow the race with the live GPS tracking map and regular updates on @sup11citytour Instagram.

Paddlecast #002: Bart de Zwart (The Yukon Episode)

I’m very excited to share the second episode of Paddlecast with you today because it features my new favourite race – The Yukon River Quest – as well as a guy I’ve got the world of respect for, Bart de Zwart.

I sat down with the four-time Yukon champion and king of endurance paddling in Canada six weeks ago to record this conversation. We go into great detail (sometimes too much detail) to describe the physical highs and mental lows of this insane, 715km race.   → READ MORE

Paddlecast #001: Casper Steinfath

I’m excited to be starting this new project and look forward to sharing some interesting paddle stories with you. And I’m very excited that the first episode features my good friend Casper Steinfath.

“The Viking” is one of the most interesting characters in the sport. He’s an incredibly accomplished athlete but what he does off the water is even more impressive.    → READ MORE

An ode to Greece…

We landed on the Greek Island of Corfu just before midnight.

We hadn’t booked a place to stay, but by 2am, and with the help of a friendly taxi driver, we had a room that slept four and a round of drinks with the owner of the local taverna.

And that pretty much set the tone for our week on the island.   → READ MORE

Live stream replay: Watch the EuroTour ‘World SUP Festival’ in Costa Blanca, Spain

Full replay of SUP Racer’s EuroTour live stream at the World SUP Festival in Costa Blanca, Spain, where Ty Judson and Olivia Piana were victorious.

Thanks for everyone that tuned in to watch! It was great to be back on the microphone. And a special thank you to Quickblade Paddles and VMG Blades for supporting our European Summer of SUP and making this whole show possible.

We experimented with a new “split-screen” format this week. Definitely still got a few things to iron out, but I think it was a creative step in the right direction and a great way to (finally) be able to give women equal coverage.

We’ll be back with another live stream in San Sebastian on June 1st, followed by Bilbao (June 8th), Corfu (June 15th), Crete (June 22nd) and Prague (July 6th).

Viking vlog: Behind-the-scenes at Casper Steinfath’s “Skagerrak” premiere

We’ve just finished a fun little trip to Denmark for the premiere of Casper Steinfath’s new film Skagerrak. If you’ve read my review, you’ll know I was already really impressed with this movie, but to see it on the big screen made it even more powerful.

And of course, it was Denmark, so the whole trip was a fun adventure!

Watch Casper’s Viking Vlog for a little behind-the-scenes edit of the weekend, including a little cameo from yours truly and SUP Racer’s new partner-in-crime, Trevor Tunnington. Not shown: Trevor’s epic dancefloor victory at the after-party

WATCH: Unboxing the crazy new “Compact” from Red Paddle Co (world’s smallest SUP?)

UNBOXING: world's smallest SUP?!

This is the new 9'6 "Compact" from Red Paddle Co (aka "The World's Smallest Paddleboard"). It's a pretty impressive piece of engineering. Watch this fun little unboxing we did in Austria recently for a closer look!

I got the chance to play with the crazy new “Compact” board from Red Paddle Co (aka the world’s smallest stand up paddle board) after the Dragon World Championships in Austria next month.

This thing fits in a backpack. I mean a real backpack. It’s a bit of a game-changer…

This thing isn’t as cheap as Red’s other boards, but if you love to travel it’s kinda priceless. World’s first carry-on SUP? The 9’6″ Red Compact will start shipping next month. Click here to see if you can still pre-order one of the first boards.

 

GoPro POV: Krumlovsky River Race in the Czech Republic

Czech Republic RIVER RACE! (GoPro POV)

Good times at the Krumlovsky vodacky maraton in the Czech Republic last week! More than 1,300 paddlers hit the water for a crazy fun river race — add it to your bucket list in 2019 (Oct. 12). Thanks to the local crew David, Lucie and Peter for showing me a good time and lending me a "Puma" from NSP – Surf and Stand Up Paddle Boards — hope I didn't put too many dings in it

Posted by SUP Racer on Monday, October 22, 2018

 
I was lucky enough to experience a very special race in the Czech Republic last week thanks to NSP and The Paddle League.

The Krumlovsky River Race is a unique event featuring over a thousand paddlers and one super fun stretch of river. The 25km, downriver course features half a dozen “weirs” that turn this into a whitewater rodeo and, at least on the bigger ramps, provide the amazing feeling of paddling downhill.

With a GoPro in my mouth, I thought I’d share this little highlights reel from my run on the NSP Puma (the 14′ by 23.5″ race board handled surprisingly well in the river). Hope you enjoy, and apologies for the awkward heavy breathing…

Add this event to your bucket list next year: October 12, 2019.

The Lost Footage: Paddling with icebergs in Iceland (2017)

Paddling with icebergs in ICELAND (…the lost footage)

12 months ago, I explored Iceland with Starboard Stand Up Paddle Surfing and enjoyed one of the most surreal paddling experiences of my life. Two weeks later, I crashed my drone into a cliff in Italy and thought the footage was lost forever. This week we stumbled upon an old backup, and now I think it's time for another adventure…
