Titouan wins long distance and technical at Alpine Paradise Race

Titouan Puyo became the French Long-Distance champion last weekend during another Long Distance event on the Île de Ré. It was the first National title of the season for T2, and like previous events, Caledonia was a force to be reckoned with on the men’s podium, this time with Noïc Garioud securing silver and Clément Colmas with bronze. This latest French Championship was organized by the Surf Club Rouvé and the French Surf Federation.Text grabbed from SurfingFrance.com (French alert), do click for a full event report.

Titouan raced an NSP Carolina Pro Carbon at this event

The Carolina is the allround racer that is reduced in width yet incredibly stable, even in the most demanding conditions. Built for speed, the NSP Carolina comes with a single centered, neoprene handle placed on a balanced fixture point for ultra-fast beach starts and close-call finishes.

Mia Soares Silva & Tomás Lacerda take 1st place at SUP Douro Race

From SUPDourorace:
“Yesterday’s event was another testimony of the promotional power of the National Portuguese Surf Federation – we had several classes competing, amongst them the SUB 10, SUB 12, SUB 15, SUB 15 FEM, SUB 18, SUB 18 FEM, OPEN & OPEN FEM, with over80 athletes racing down the scenic waterline of Porto. If nothing else, this was a great promotion of the Gondomar region as well”

“Big shoutout to all athletes who competed and who made the 6km trek from the Praia de Marecos – Zebreiros to Praia de Marecos.”

With several courses set out, Mia & Verónica ran the 6km Queen event in the protected flat water section on the Duoro River, making it an ideal racing ground for the NSP Ninja. Tomás Lacerda ran the full 17km downwinder starting in the marina section of Porto and running all the way South on open water towards Praia de Aguda (Aguda Beach).

Additionally, Verónica raced the final day on her 20.5 Carolina to duke it out in the 14km downwinder. The weather changed though and what was supposed to be a smoother ride turned into a challenge with upwind conditions, crossing waves and a lot of rain and fog. Overall bad conditions for recreational paddling but superb for a Carolina in a National Endurance race. With an average speed of 7kmh Verónica took the win.

Titouan wins long distance and technical at Alpine Paradise Race

The Alpine Paradise Race 2021 took place on Lake Place Moulin on Saturday the 25th. Blessed with a sunny day and mild temperatures, paddlers competed on a long-distance course, a short distance one, and a technical Race.

With the lake being 2000 meters above sea level, locals certainly had an advantage but it was to no avail as Titouan secured the top place in both the Long Distance race and the Technical Race.

Maui Sach takes the win at 2021 Baltic Sea Festival

The Sach Family dominated the proceedings last week at the Baltic Sea Festival’s 1st Ocean Race. Maui was in form finishing under three hours with an average speed of 9.2 kmh (5.7mph) and a solid fifteen minutes in front of the runner up, Nils Lønborg and his father, Frithjof Sach who maintained the 3rd place until the finish. Maui raced a solid race on his NSP Ninja, facing considerable competition from over 280 racers in the marina.

The long-distance was followed by a beach race that the Baltic sea dishes up more than just flatwater.

Kaelan takes overall title at Pulse Electrical Clearwater Classic

With heavy International travel restrictions, the SUP clubs are organizing grassroots events at a local level, spreading the stoke and getting as many riders as possible out there on the water.

Well promoted by Pulse Electrical and Bundaberg Now, the Clearwater Classic got an elegant amount of publicity online and we were stoked to see Kaelan Lockhart taking an overall win.

“We had perfect fun conditions for the technical race with a few good runners. I used the Carolina 24 1/4 and the Ninja 21 3/4 for my races.”

“For the 10k long-distance race we enjoyed beautifully clear water with a well-timed change
of tide to carry us back home – this was a fantastic and well-organised weekend!”

Titouan finishes second at Eurotour’s Montenegro stop

Last weekend Montenegro welcomed the Eurotour for its maiden race and with breathtaking scenery and a beautiful summer day on offer, it turned out to be an epic event.

For those who don’t know, Montenegro has been a country in its own right since 2006 now, and while its name suggests otherwise (“Black Mountain”) it is actually a microstate with some of the most beautiful beaches in the region.

Sunday’s race was held at Luštica Bay, a dreamy spot uniting old-world traditional fishing charm with upscale facilities, and for one weekend only, hardcore SUP Racing.

For NSP, Canadian racer Dan Hamzic took 8th place while Titouan Puyo raced Michael Booth over pretty much the entire course. Spectators described the duel as an extended drag race, and unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be for T2 after 22 straight #1 Podium finishes.

During the last section of the race, Titouan was unable to close the gap created by the Australian and had to settle for 2nd place.

Gunther Debin recaps the  SUP11 City Tour of Team SUP Fever

“We did it, what a journey! This year Nele Martens, Joeri Boon, Cindy Humbert and our 15-year old youngster Rhune Spincemaille traveled up to gorgeous Leeuwarden, Netherlands for their SUP adventure to represent NSP Belgium and the SUP fever team.”

“Day 1 and 2 were sweltering hot days. Nele, Cindy and Joeri decided to race at their own pace, to drink a lot and to take things as they come. On the Slotenmeer with strong wind and waves from the passing boats, our NSP Carolinas (14/23.5) did what they were made for, offering stability and cut through the chop. For our rookies, that ability translated into a lot of confidence, considering they had only started training earlier this year.”

“Day 3 and 4 were a cocktail of typical 11City conditions (editor: Ah yes, that famous Dutch weather): The temperature dropped, one minute it was drizzly, and the next moment the sun popped out. Behind one bend a strong headwind would lurk, followed by another curve in the river, giving us some wind in the back.”

“The canals with the regular traffic from vessels provided the necessary waves and challenges, but none were too big for the Carolinas and their riders. Where Nele decided to conserve as much energy as possible right up to the end, Joeri and Cindy boldly went out of their comfort zones and took the Frysian waters head on.”

“And then all of a sudden it was day 5, the day of the finish but especially the day of Rhune on her Ninja 14/22. From Dokkum to Leeuwarden with a strong head wind, she didn’t feel like drafting, she wanted to race her own race and go at it at her pace. . The Ninja cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. It was remarkable to see that the board remained very stable with boats coming from behind.”

“The board remained well controllable and Rhune was able to get on the occasional hump generated by the vessels. But 27K still needs to be paddled and all four riders performed successfully that last day. Our takeaway ist that with the right mindset and equipment you can take on any challenge.”

“Nice work great guys, I’m a proud coach once more!”

Rider impressions from the ICF Worlds in Hungary

“This was my first ever international event. For the first time I could
benchmark my performance with the top International athletes in my division. Despite having an
accident in the sprint semifinal that ended up taking me out of the
final, I am very happy with my performance.”

“I got a 9th place in the sprints and a 12th place in the technical race. I really enjoyed using
my Carolina on both races, the shape worked in buoy turns and performed enough during my 200m sprints.”

Next up,  I am getting ready to prepare for upcoming competitions.”

WORLD WINNING GEAR

Double gold at the ICF Worlds Today in Hungary

Titouan takes the world title today from the defending champion and only Australian present at the event, Michael Booth. In all fairness, getting out there to Hungary has been a struggle for many athletes due to travel restrictions, making this an event dominated by Europeans.

Daniel Parres meanwhile dominated in the 50+ division, also becoming a world champion in the process. Both riders met after the finish, possibly discussing their NSP Ninja Pro Carbon setup (who knows)?

Anyone following the live feed could see just how flat the conditions were despite this being one of the greatest lakes in Europe. The live feed is still available for watching btw, simply follow the link here.

Kaelan Lockhart wins SUP Old Woman Ocean Paddle

The Old Woman Ocean Paddle takes place at the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. It’s a unique festival for paddlers of all abilities and Ocean Endurance athletes who share a love for the ocean environment and Sunshine Coast culture.

Starting at the Mooloolaba Spit, The Old Woman Ocean Paddle challenges Ocean and Spec ski paddlers as well as SUP, OC1 and prone board paddlers throughout the 18km journey along the coast line to Mudjimba around Old Woman Island and return.

If that course doesn’t fit your paddling ability just yet, there’s The Little Woman, a 5km course within the Mooloolaba Beach bay.

Kaelan Lockhart won the 18k race on a wider NSP Sonic Pro Carbon for the choppier conditions of the open water. Kaelan paddles an NSP 100% Carbon Speedster 86.

BEG MEIL PADDLE CUP 2021 at Kerambigorne Beach, France

With around 100 athletes participating in the technical and long-distance race at the Beg meil paddle cup 2021, this event has a local vibe and was more of a French affair than most of the racing over the last weeks where International big shots competed.

Undoubtedly the man the beat, Titouan Puyo managed to come out on top once more, and so did Iona Rivet, both conquering Technical and Long Distance Race.

Fellow NSP Teamriders Vincent Verhoeven finished 3rd and Virginie Samson placed 5th in the long-distance race.

Titouan wins Vendée Gliss Event 2021

Titouan secures eight consecutive wins in a row

We’re starting to feel like that supporter in Brad Pitt’s “Moneyball” movie, holding up that sign saying “WE MAY NEVER LOSE AGAIN!”. With races being held structurally again in Europe, all eyes are looking at the EuroTour, and International athletes are flying in as well to travel, compete and stake their claim in the rankings.

Currently, no one is doing a better job than Titouan though, coming out on top eight times in a row, winning the Extreme Cordouan outrigger event first in the OC1 class, before appearing at the starting line at Vendee Glisse with his Carolina 20.5, a few kilometers up north of the Atlantic French coast.

Long Distance
With 50 riders at the starting line and some of the best competitors to date, this was going to be an interesting one. Île d’Yeu, normally famous for its lobster and tuna, is live streaming another leg in the EuroTour 2021 competition.

With flat mountain lake conditions, the Ninja bulbous design pierced through the water, creating a smooth ride with minimal wake for maximum efficiency.

Saving that energy for longer runs – An incredibly fast flatwater weapon with key design elements that work really well in water with textured conditions. Nose diving is minimized by a subtle redistribution of the volume, while an improved cockpit design keeps out more water.

Carolina Pro Carbon is the winning tool for 90% of all racing conditions

The Carolina comes with neoprene handles and several balanced fixture points.  4 AVS Drain holes quickly expel excess water from the dugout. A patented GORE® vent near the GoPro (or GPS) fixture point prevents a pressure build-up, allowing oxygen to pass but keeping out moisture.

Jonesy takes the win at Noosa Festival of Surf 2021 Open Longboard SUPs

After competing with family and NSP team member Hugsley at the dog surfing comp, Jonesy truly struck gold at the Open Longboard SUPs this year. With a stacked field of competitors, this made the win all the sweeter for Jonesy and his SLX DC Super X.

  1. Paul “Jonesy” Jones
  2. Raymond Gleave
  3. James Casey
  4. Dylan Henry

Jonesy’s board, the SLX DC Super X range is all about performance longboarding and exceptional surf versatility.

Notice the tail that’s slightly widened compared to last year’s shape. This board has four channels on the rocker, generating speed, while the swallowtail loosens up the tail for greater manoeuvrability.

“SLX” signifies that these boards are made with flax rails and Paulownia wood for its deck.

The DC Super X is for the big stuff and the smaller swell

The range suits both smaller and bigger swell. Depending on the conditions, the DC Super X works in a wide variety of conditions, allowing you to rip on bigger days or try yourself with some classic moves like the helicopter or goof around with a transfer.

“I’m happiest paddling these out to my local point at Currumbin Gold Coast, trimming on the nose, or back on the swallow and effortlessly enjoying a classic cutty or two.”
Dale Chapman – Shaper

Riders pushing hard will come to appreciate the extra grip, courtesy of the Thermoformed EVA tail kick pad with center arch.

Kealan Lockhart winning the golden buoy sprint at the 12 Towers Ocean Paddle Festival 2021

12 Towers Ocean Paddle Festival is one of the best-attended and famous paddle races Down Under, representing the best and beauty of the Gold Coast.

Exciting to see some fresh blood battling for the podium! 💥 How good was Kaelan Lockhart’s sprint to the “golden buoy” in Friday’s 12 Towers surf race — I’d heard big things about this guy after his thumping victory at the Port Stephens race a couple of months back, and I think after today he deserves the title of “dark horse” for season 2021.⁣ He’s still gotta fine tune his footwork and refine that “raw” technique, but his is definitely a name to remember (if it was flat water today, I don’t think any of the boys were catching him).
“Watch all the big names, weekend warriors and club representatives from up and down the east coast of Oz tackle the towers in Saturday’s main event, the 14km ocean race (downwinder?!) — grab a front row seat with SUP Racer’s LIVE STREAM right here on Facebook. The fun starts at 11am local time. Don’t expect ESPN 😅 but hopefully it’ll be a fun return to racing!
Big thanks to Dany Leclerc for the awesome drone footage”

A flat deck board suited for all paddlers, in all conditions.

Athletes who prefer a conventional shape over a recessed cockpit usually race the NSP Puma. The most versatile and user-friendly board in the NSP range, the PUMA Pro Carbon is a gateway towards performance paddling on a recessed deck. Initially designed for beach racing, the Puma’s have evolved into very capable downwinders and flat-water boards.

Increased stability over previous models, with the same width as last year’s design, will let you come racing on top every time. Whether it’s a crowded buoy turn, a difficult beach break, or a demanding sprint; stability is everything.

If you want to kick-turn easy, if you want to play in the waves, if you want to downwind and you love flat-deck race shapes, the NSP Puma is for you.
