Fernando Stalla And April Zilg Win The Soundsurfer Race In… Connecticut

Soundsurfer Challenge stand up paddle race

SUP racing is apparently alive and well in Connecticut (above New York/below Boston) with over a hundred paddlers turning out for the Soundsurfer Waterman’s Challenge on the weekend.

One of those traveled a rather long way to get there, with Mexico’s Fernando Stalla taking out the elite 7 mile race ahead of Jeramie Vaine and Terry Kent. Over in the women’s April Zilg was too strong, paddling her 12’6 over the line in a time of 1 hour 27 minutes, which was faster than a lot of the guys in the 14′ division.
