Tom Auber 3rd!

Gla Gla SUP Race France

Last weekend, the famous Gla Gla SUP Race took place at Lake Annecy. With 637 paddlers (200 women!) it is the second-biggest race in the world. Conditions were freezing cold but at least sunny.

This event is so much more than just a race, and it's about so much more than just the results. It's a "gathering of the tribe," and judging from what we saw this year, our tribe is getting pretty damn big. The atmosphere on the water is electric, and the sight of 600+ paddlers charging towards the first buoy is truly extraordinary. A great sign for the health and future of our sport.


Well done to Tom Auber for finishing 3rd in the Long Distance and 2nd in the Technical Race and to his brother Marius Auber who cracked the top 10. And to Ella Oesterholt for finishing in 5th in the Long Distance & 3rd in the Technical Race in the Womens!

Big credits to all Fanatic riders competing there - great job!
