SUWS: European Cup Heads to Germany
The Standup World Series‘ annual event in Germany, the Camp David World Cup of SUP, kicks off Friday, July 18, 2014, in its new location in Fehmarn.
The Camp David World Cup of SUP is the third event of the 2014 Standup World Series and the fourth of five stops in the European Cup. Top standup paddlers from around the globe will compete in sprints and a long distance race, with results combined from each of the two races to determine the overall event champion.
This third World Series event will see lots of action as the European Cup nears the championships and the world’s fastest paddlers make their final pushes toward the European Cup Title as well as the overall World Title. World Series rankings leader Connor Baxter will be battling with fellow Maui boys Kai Lenny and Zane Schweitzer, who round out the top three rankings going into the Germany Stop. Lenny, a two-time World Series Champion, won April’s Abu Dhabi Stop and will be looking for another win to strengthen his number two world ranking and bump Baxter from the top. Schweitzer has been taking Europe by storm, winning the last three World Series events, including Spain, France, and most recently, Finland.
