Non stop action here in Lima Peru for the Nations Parade, where the Swiss Team did not go unnoticed with their handmade embroidered Swiss capes, flags attached to their paddles, lots of cowbell ringing and an on stage yoddle.

 

Representing Switzerland:

Steeve Fleury: 4.5km Technical Race Open / SUP Surfing
Jean-luc Malfroid: 4.5km Technical Race Open / SUP Marathon

Tough start for the Swiss team in the SUP Surfing contest but both Steeve Fleury and Christophe Querry battled hard in the qualifying rounds of the World Championships.
Even if they missed the qualification, they're both are happy to have been able to represent our "Heimat" wonderful Switzerland, a country with no coastline at this historical SUP Surf event.

Fantastic day for the Swiss team who not only both qualified but place well in the finals competing against the worlds best check out Steeve Fleury amazing 15th place and Jean Luc Malffroid 22nd place on the results below:
