The Lake Rocks festival had a lot to offer with a field of over 300 paddlers from 21 countries coming to Faak Lake for the Alps Trophy which included €12,000 up for grabs across both the Long-distance and ICF Technical races in their respective categories.

The opening paddle day saw Blue Ewer on an impressive pace taking out 4th  in the long-distance event which was an exciting start because he kept this same momentum, rolling into the Technical where he also clinched another 4th to see him standing on the podium in top 4 overall. Blue rode the Cheetah in the technical race which gave him both the looseness to turn at speed at a buoy yet maintained extra stability paddling at speed to give him an edge while the young man “Ben Leon” took out 9th in U16 category.

Sveva Sabato who is an incredible talent placed in 9th in the open Women’s speed race and took out the U16 final placing 1st.  Claudia Positglione paddled incredibly well over the weekend, 2nd in both the Technical and Speed Races, which saw her placing to 2nd overall for the whole event standing on the podium once again while Erica Revil placed in 9th from Open Women.

Claudia secures 2nd and Sveva 3rd in the Junior category, with Iona Rivet and Blue Ewer taking 5th and 6th at The Water Festival, Italy

The Go Water Festival takes place in Mondello, an idyllic beach neighborhood in Palermo, Sicily, showcased a range of water sports, including the Stand Up Paddle Elite races and a part of the 2024 Euro Tour.

With Titouan Puyo, Iona Rivet, Blue Ewer, and Claudia Postiglione competing, we expected a decent amount of podium space for NSP.

In the men’s race, British paddler Blue Ewer made an impressive showing, navigating the course with precision and finishing strong among a competitive field of international athletes securing himself 6th! The difference between 2nd and 6th was .02 of a second.

French paddler Titouan Puyo initially set a strong pace, but struggled to keep up with the younger generation of racers. A rib injury prevented Titouan from training since the ICF Worlds. Despite this setback, Puyo displayed his usual tenacity on the water and cruised his way into an impressive 16th amongst the world’s best despite his injury.

In the women’s race, French paddler Iona Rivet made her mark by paddling solo for much of the competition, securing a notable 5th-place finish in her debut International race of the season. Italian paddler and junior world champion Claudia Posiglione also showcased her endurance, consistently trailing the leading pack. Ultimately Claudia proved her prowess on the water by finishing 7th along with fellow Junior paddler Sveva, who finished 9th Overall, with a 3rd place in the junior category.

Bodie Von Allmen claims third place at Carolina’s Cup Graveyard Race

The 13th Annual Carolina Cup was held last week, filled to the brim with clinics, meet’n greets, demos, and five monumental races. The Graveyard being the big dog in the event, considered by paddle athletes to be one of the major races to compete in. Other races include Saturday’s 3.5-mile Harbor Island Recreational race, a 6.5-mile Money Island Open Race, and a friendly race for kids only.

Back in 2023, the previous edition of the Carolina Cup was elevated to 7-Star status – the highest ranking and one of only three races in the world to attain the lucky 7.

This is a beach start and finish. This is a 12.6-13.2-mile ocean- and flatwater race, started on the ocean side of the Blockade Runner Beach Resort. Next, athletes head out through the surf, downwind to the inlet, into the inland waterways and ICWW around Wrightsville Beach.

There are two inlets, one of which requires racers to surf waves in through the inlet, along with some boat traffic and local swell. The ocean section of the race will be the downwind section, if the weather cooperates.

Usually, the organizer will change the direction of the race to optimize the conditions for a fast, fun, challenging race. Your mileage depends on the line you take and has been controversial in the past. This Carolina Cup Graveyard Race is for elite paddlers with the skill and fitness to complete this endurance challenge.

The race is called The Graveyard, because depending on your fitness level, experience and swell, it will take between 2 and 3.5 hours to complete the course. If not for the competition, it is a great way to push your limits and benchmark yourself in a variety of conditions against some of the best paddlers in the world.

The rulebook says all athletes must finish the half-way mark within two hours, and there is a five-hour limit to complete the race.

In the end, water woman pur sang Jenny Kalmbach finished 1st in the women’s segment and Bodie von Allmen snatched the last piece of podium space with a 3rd place:

Bodie von Allmen places 3rd at Dana Ocean Challenge

The Dana Ocean Challenge is a 10-mile open water race located in Dana Point, Southern California. This race is a 2024 USA Ocean Racing Team Qualifier.

Bodie van Allmen is an NSP Teamrider from Oregon, USA. The 2024 Dana Ocean Challenge is organized by the fine people of the Dana Outrigger Canoe Club.

We saw you raced your Carolina 20.5 – how did that work out?
The Carolina is my favourite all-around board and works in any conditions so not surprisingly, it worked very well milking any bump that was out there.

What was your average paddling speed?
I did not have my GPS but I probably averaged about 6 to 6.5 mph

How many paddlers participated you reckon?
There were about 100 total participants on the 5-mile short course.

Are you going to attend next year’s edition?
I have not planned next season out yet but as long as there is nothing else conflicting, I’ll be back down next year.

What’s next for you?

I will be coming back down to SoCal next weekend for the Adler Paddler Race in Long Beach on March 24th. It’s going to be a flat water race so I will be using my Ninja.
