Standup World Tour Hamburg

One big SUP party in the middle of Hamburg and I simply had to go. I convinced my wife tog go with me to see the racing on sunday. I originally planned to join the fun-race but in the end it didn't fit  in to my plans . The weather was rainy but even my wife seemed to enjoy herself. A great set up event with lots of different SUP manufactors putting their gear on display.
A lot of the top athletes were there as well and I was really looking to see some racing. The course was layedout within the harbor consisting of 10 laps of 1 km. Perfect for the spectators, there was non stop action, I not sure the racers wold have opted for fewer sharp turns but in the end it was a lot of fun to watch.
Here is a short video produced by Tonix pictures

Here are some pics from the event..
Camp David really put on a show
