The Sieravuori SUP Masters was well underway this past weekend from July 5-6, 2014 as paddlers descended upon Finland for Stop #3 of the European Cup.
Naish Viking Casper Steinfath continued to show that he is one of Europe’s leading lights and one of the World’s most consistent paddlers by posting a 3rd place Overall Result after finishing 2nd in the 16km Distance Race and 3rd in the Sprints. Casper is now sitting in 2nd place in the European Cup Ratings and continues to lead Europe with a string of good results in Bilbao, Oleron and now Finland.
Naish Germany’s Noelani Sach also continued to make her mark in the European SUP circuit by placing 1st Overall in the Women’s Division thanks to her 1st place finishes in both the Long Distance & Sprints. Way to step up the competition Noelani! Stoked for you!
Another hard battle took place in the Na Kama Kai Youth Challenge where Noelani’s brother Maui Sach finished in a very impressive 2nd! Big ups to Noelani, Casper and Maui who also took part in the N1SCO SUP Race and took out the competition!
