Naish’s Ethan Koopmans secures 2nd at Stop #4 of the South Africa SUPSA Race Tour

August 20, 2014

August 16, 2014Stop #4 of the South African SUPSA Race Tour went down this weekend in Hout Bay, Cape Town. Over 60 paddlers, including a nice showing from Team Naish, participated across all divisions for a day they’ll never forget on the water.

Naish’s Ethan Koopmans and his Naish Javelin 14’0” LE continued to give Dylan Frick a race to the finish, although settled for 2nd place after a well-fought battle. It is an ongoing battle between Ethan and Dylan this season as these two continue to step it up at every race and the crowds can’t wait to see who comes out on top for Stop #5!

There are still two more stops to go for this 6 Stop Tour, so there’s plenty of action up ahead for Ethan as well as our other Naish Team riders.

Keep up the great work everyone!
