JEVER SUP World Cup :: Hamburg, Germany

We've been so busy at the lately, that I'm just barely getting around to telling ya'll about the JEVER SUP World Cup...a 3 day international SUP race / event that took place in Hamburg, Germany July 10 - 12 with 27,000 spectators...major sponsorship from Jever beer...the biggest standup paddle race to date, and a harbinger of things surely to come...

Mahalos to Eric Terrien for bringing us these killer images and vid clips...and congrats on his 2nd place finish...



SUPsports team rider, Ernie (EJ) Johnson was one of the 20 pro invitees...we're really stoked for him, and proud that he was representing...he did great considering he only brought his 12'6"...finishing 5th in the long distance race...and, 6th in the sprints...



We've been getting lots of web traffic and requests from Germany for our tshirts and stickers, so we know that he was representing...;-)

Here's EJ battling 3rd place finisher, John Hibbard...Starboard team rider...





EJ is such a humble guy with a good heart...stoked to know him and his wife...
Here's a copy of an email he sent to a bunch of folks in the SUP universe...

"I recently competed in a world class event representing my sport of SUP.
What an Honor, for me to be involved in this first time event,
representing the U.S.A!

Thanks to my friends and family and sponsors , for their support over
the last two years of racing.

Special thanks to Wardog and Debbie from StandUpPaddleSports for their
moral and financial support.

Mahalos
E.J"

We hope to be able to announce some more exciting news concerning EJ soon...;-)

1st place went to Starboard team rider Ekolu Kalama...he was riding a prototype Starboard K-14...we've been helping to design and place the production version in the Starboard lineup...



Ekolu checking out EJ's 12'6"...shaped by Brian Szymanski of NCP...



The Starboard K-14...2 piece model!!!
Nice job, Svein and team Starboard...





Here are the final results and rankings...

EJ loves standup paddling and beer...but, not necessarily in that order...;-)
