On September 16th, the Surfin‘ Venice SUP Race took place in beautiful Venice, Italy. Let’s start by saying that registering for this race was most likely the cheapest way ever to do a full day of sightseeing in (very expensive) Venice….but probably also the most exhausting and patience-testing.
Leo Nika (Starboard) once more proved he is in amazing form and not only a strong paddler but also a great surfer. He won the race overall, on the 12’6” BOP board in 0:37:23, followed by Daniele Guidi (Jimmy Lewis, 14’) and Fabrizio Gasbarro (Fanatic, 14’). Fabrizio was later placed 3rd in 14’ due to a false start.
