Pye takes the win at first ever London Crossing SUP Race.

Great race in some pretty tough conditions, with torrential rain throughout the 16km distance race through the centre of the city of London. Starboard SUP team rider Ben Pye took the win after working with Ben Fisher and PJ Simmons for the first half of the race, he broke away and paddled the rest of the 16km race out front on his own to finish in a time of 1hour 28 minutes. He paddled a Starboard 14’ x 21.5” Sprint.

“ Stoked to take out the London Crossing this weekend in #London 🥇. Racing right through the centre of London. So good to feel the training finally pay off. “

“Huge thanks to Active 360 for putting on a great event, it will be an unforgettable race for me, paddling through the centre of London. A very rare opportunity”

“Massive thanks to all my sponsors and support team for their continued help, I couldn’t do it without them all. Especially Blue Chip Board Store in London for sorting me out last minute with a Waist Leash, the biggest inflatable SUP store in the UK stocking the best Starboard inflatables and Hard boards. Check them out online. Or instore in Kingston”
