Connor Baxter wins the Technical Race at the
2015 ISA World Championships

It was a nice change up to be able to cheer for your fellow teammates and make game plans with them so everyone did well.

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).
