3rd Hellenic Sup Cup 2013 | Corinth Canal

The two fastest stand up paddlers in Europe (and the world) right now, Frenchman Eric Terrien and the Danish Viking, Casper Steinfath, have dominated today’s Hellenic SUP Cup race in Greece. Stretching along the historic Corinth Canal, the race attracted over 120 eager locals, who were no doubt keen to paddle one of the most interesting SUP race courses in the world as well as rub shoulders with two guys that are helping put Europe on the SUP racing map. Today’s race – the “Isthmus Speed Crossing” – was the fifth and final leg of the 2013 Hellenic SUP Cup, the third annual running of the series. Terrien came home 1st with Casper in 2nd, the Frenchman no doubt pleased to get one back on the young Dane who has had an absolute stellar year (ISA Worlds, BOP, World Series) and is seriously threatening Eric’s long-held title of European #1.

The Danish Viking seemed pretty happy after the race: Got 2nd place at the Corinth Canal crossing today here in Greece! The race was amazing and took us through the beautiful ancient canal. The Greeks are some of the nicest people and it was an honor to race with all 129 of them! Cool to see so many kids having fun on the water! Thanks everyone for making this unforgettable day of fun happen.

Eric, meanwhile, was a little more direct: “Just won the Isthmus sup crossing in Greece. Stoked !”
