Eric Terrien Trains Olympic-Style in Spain

Check out this cool video from Europe’s #1 paddler, Eric Terrien.

Eric recently had the pleasure of training on the exclusive Canal Olimpic de Catalunya, which was built to host the kayak sprint races at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

It’s cool to see SUP being accepted into an exclusive venue like this one, especially with all the talk of our sport pushing for a spot in the Olympic Games one day.

Stand Up Padding on the Canal Olimpic de Catalunya has been pioneered by Tony Fuentes. The Catalan local recently started the “Club de SUP Castelldefels” which calls the Canal home.

The club is hosting the first ever SUP race on the canal on April 22nd. More info on the club’s official site (English translation).
