Crushing it on the Euro Tour!

The Starboard Dream Team is on fire.  They’ve been on 3 stops thus far on this 2017 Sup Euro Tour and taking top podium spots along the way.

At Stop #1 in the gorgeous waters of Crete, Greece Starbies Leo Nika and Penelope Strickland took top spots to dominate the field.  Then, at Stop #2 in Numur, Belgium, Starboard team rider Bruno Hasulyo claimed the top spot on the podium for the Dream Team.

Starboard at Euro Tour’s Stop #3 in Saint-Maxime, France takes top spots

This past weekend, the Euro Tour took a turn to the Mediterranean for the Sup Race Cup in Saint-Maxime.  In a highly anticipated race, along the iconic shoreline along the French Riviera (Saint-Maxime sits across the bay from the St. Tropez), Sonnie Honscheid entered the tour by storm, announcing her presence with a first place win that brooked no argument.  Paralleled by her, in the men’s division, Aussie Michael Booth also claimed leadership in the race by taking the top spot on the podium, firmly placing Starboard at the top of the leader board overall.

Sainte Maxime is a special place for me as it was the first international distance race I won. After coming off a couple of disappointing results in the USA and Japan I was extremely happy to take the overall this year at stop 3 of the Euro Tour! It was an important win and confidence booster for me and I’m looking forward to the rest of the Tour.”  – Michael Booth

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
