SUWS: Highlights from Oléron Island

The Standup World Series’ (SUWS) Oléron Island Paddle Challenge wrapped up over the weekend with Maui’s Zane Schweitzer taking the overall event win. The event was the second of five stops in the SUWS’ European Cup, which Schweitzer now leads, after winning the first stop earlier this month in Spain and this weekend’s Oléron Island event.

On the opening day of the Oléron Island Paddle Challenge, Tituoan Puyo of New Caledonia took charge with a victory in the Long Distance Race, a downwinder where he finished ahead of seasoned World Series racers including France’s Eric Terrien, Schweitzer, Casper Steinfath of Denmark, and Australia’s Beau O’Brian, who finished second through fifth, respectively.

On the Women’s side, France’s Cecile Gondre paddled to her first SUWS win, ahead of second place Valerie Vitry, also of France.

Next up in the 2014 Standup World Series is the Finland Paddle Challenge, scheduled for July 4 – 6, 2014. Stay tuned to SUPtheMag.com for event coverage and highlights.
