The beautiful City of Osaka played host to the World’s very best Stand Up Paddle Athletes this past weekend, as the 2019 Osaka SUP Open Technical Racing events took center stage on Saturday 21st. It was a full day of short-course fun and competition on Saturday at the event site on Nakonoshima Island, right at the heart of Osaka.
It was a tough day of the racing for most of the Starboard team with such competitive field present in both the men’s and women’s Pro Elite Sprints events. Connor Baxter was the stand out performer and finished 2nd on the podium, in a tight battle against the in-form Casper Steinfarth.
