Latitude N 63° 57.7013′ Longitude E 10°.11.3 3993′ Lofoten, Norway 9-14 August.
Back in March, Norwegian friends and SUP organisors Kjell and Eilen got in touch: “We’re looking at running some courses in the Lofoten’s, would you like to run them? The location we’re looking at is Unstad beach, a top surf destination in the Lofoten Islands, is that ok? ”
Blown out to sea!-had to tack back to shore, not so easy for a little guy on a big 17’6″ board:-)
“The (Icon) Classic course doesn’t come without its challenges. Morte-Point (French for Death Point) didn’t get its name without good reason! This headland has a dark history of ship wrecking on its sharp jagged rocks and should only be navigated at certain times of the tide….” (Extracted from http://iconsports.eu/icon-classic-2015/ )
Hi all, wanted to get this up a month ago, but work demands have been great but fantastic and fast. Better late than never:-) Thanks to Simon Bassett for most of the sports and team shots, also everyone else who took photos.
Lastly and not leastly I’d like to thank again all those who helped support me in this endeavour-I realise how fortunate I am… Enjoy!!
Billed as the “World Fastest Paddle Board-ever!” Is it? Read on and judge for yourself.
Last September after the Starboard conference, I got in my head to try the sprint unlimited
in a race, how fast is it? Do something that perhaps hasn’t been done before, push the boundaries!The opportunity to do a race in the UK and overseas (perhaps) on an unlimited board is very limited:-) How about the Head Of The Dart (HOTD)?
