Congrats Marcel on the 1st Place 12’6 inflatable SUP Switzerland Biel 9.7.2017

Short story

Marcel on his 2017 FIT OCEAN ULTRA inflatable 12’6 x 25′ x 5” finished 1st. 

Long story

We had the pleasure to attend the SUP Tour Schweiz SUP Race in Switzerland Bielersee, Nidau.

Several races happening and our team rider was up for the 5.2 kilometer race over the lake and through the village of Nidau.

Organisation with KayLenny attending.

Time to race

To be honest we don’t have clue how he does but Marcel always manages to land a top 3 position. He seems deliberately not to start on the startline but strategically ? at the back of the field and then creeps up on them.

On 3/4 of the race on a bridge he is in 4th position in the 12’6 inflatable category behind some Naish one boards. Nice to see in the video how good he is tracking in a cool straight line rather the zig-zagging.

We leave him on the other side of the bridge and head over to the finish.

Where to our exitement he has overtaken the last people and finishes as the 1st on a 12’6 inflatable Race SUP. In 39 Minutes he did 5.2 kilometer which makes a 8 km/h average speed.

Number 129 resting after victory

Next up the fun race where the Support team comes in action. Timo doing his first race and finishing second in the fun race on the FIT OCEAN Speedster 12’6 x 29 x 5”. And respect to Anes who is new to SUP and finished the fun race on the FIT OCEAN Cruise 12′ x 34” x 6”

Thanks to all participators and see you next race!
