It is not just the SIC boards that are expected to perform well here, SIC has a talented pool of athletes paddling in this weekends race. Continue reading ‘SIC and the famous Maliko Downwind Run’

Last weekend Georges Cronsteadt took charge of the Air France Paddle Festival in front of all of his friends and family in Tahiti in the 24km Elite SUP Race.

The race began at Mahina (Pointe Vénus) with a downwind paddle which was definitely “difficult to navigate on a flatwater race board” said Georges. The race then led into the same course as the 9.5km Lagoon Course which allowed for the flatwater portion of the race up until the finish at Punaauia (Taapuna).
