What’sup With You?
1 January, 2012 - 14 January, 2012
PUMA is offering free Stand Up Paddleboarding sessions every day at the Destination Village beach
PUMA PADDLEBOARDING SESSIONSWHEN: Daily from 1 - 14 January TIME: 11am - 5pm
WHERE: The VOR Racing Village beach
WHAT TO WEAR: Swimming costumes
Note: we have lifejackets for people who are not proficient swimmers and small children need to be accompanied by a parent.The limited edition PUMA/LAIRD standup paddleboards take inspiration from the hull design of PUMA’s Mar Mostro Volvo Open 70 racing yacht, both ergonomically and through the use of the same ultralightweight carbon fibre materials. The design is a result of collaboration between PUMA, professional surfer Laird Hamilton and renowned boat designer Juan Kouyoumdjian: the mastermind behind PUMA’s Mar Mostro. The boards feature the bright red tentacle design, matching PUMA’s Mar Mostro and this marks the first time that boat hull design innovation will be applied to paddleboards. Laird Hamilton made his name for his daring feats on a surfboard and he remains one of the world’s fittest surfers and most famous surfers. As part of the crew, he will be the official fitness and nutrition coach and join Kenny Read for the training of the team. Hamilton is also known as one of the top proponents of paddleboarding and he has designed a new hi-tech, standup version to mark his partnership with Read's Volvo Ocean Race challenge. Hamilton invented ‘tow-in’ surfing, which allowed monster waves to be ridden and it’s these waves that the PUMA crew will be searching for.
