UPCOMING EVENT: RACE A NAISH ONE AT N1SCO 2016 EVENTS—FREE!
Naish UK would like to offer 10 paddlers the opportunity to experience stand up paddle racing and, more specifically, Naish ONE Design Racing (or N1SCO as we call it). We will loan you a board for the season in return for your commitment to attend 6 race events this year including the Nationals, Inlands and 4 of the UK SUP Club events featuring Naish ONE Design Racing. “We are looking for paddlers of all levels. You don’t need to be an experienced racer and, actually, what is most important to us is your enthusiasm to get involved and help us grow the sport,” explains Alex Tobutt from Naish UK.
If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

We caught up with Federico to find out how he’s been coping with these seemingly endless surf-filled days and why the Hokua Raptor, Hokua X32 LE and Hokua X32 GTW are his boards of choice for these memorable conditions.
