Thousands of fans turned up along the pier at Scharbeutz, quite early to watch the epic surfing combat. Casper Steinfath, Connor Baxter, Jake Jensen and Arthur Arutkin put up some incredible performances and showed the world why they are the major frontrunners for the 2016 World title.
Casper Steinfath took the big win on Day 1 of the Mercedes-Benz SUP World Cup while Connor Baxter finished 2nd. On the women’s side, Fiona Wylde displayed a dominant performance to become the winner of Day 1’s sprint racing action.
Day 2 was a battle of both talent and strategy. Michael Booth powered his way up around the 7th lap course and gained an edge over Conner to finish first. left Fiona Wylde behind to gain ground in the forthcoming laps and emerged as the clear winner.
Aside from competitive SUP racing, the Scharbeutz event had much more to offer to athletes and spectators. There was on-site entertainment, amateur racing, and demos. The next stop of the event will be held at Toronto, Canada between Aug. 26th – 28th.
